New Plan for Growth in the Braintree District

The Braintree District Plan for Growth is our refreshed Economic Prospectus. It sets out what has been achieved since the original document’s publication in 2013; what we have learned about the Braintree District economy since then; what the future plans to support growth are, and how the Council is seeking to help deliver them between 2017-2022.

Braintree District Draft Plan for Growth

The Council is fully aware that it cannot deliver growth on its own, and as such this Plan for Growth is intended to be delivered in partnership with other public sector organisations and, crucially, the private sector.

To that end we are seeking the views of Businesses, Partner organisations and Residents on the draft plan and would greatly welcome your input on this key strategic document. The consultation will run until the 30th September, during which time you can respond with your comments at any time using our online surveys listed below:

Alternatively you can request a hard copy of the consultation questionnaire by emailing or by calling 01376 552525 and asking for the Economic Development Team. In the event that you need any help or further information, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team on the email address or telephone number above and an officer will be able to assist you.

Services to support your Business Growth

The Council works with a range of Partners who provide free subsidised and paid for services for local Businesses. For more information, see the other pages within this section.
