Supporting Business Growth
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.
The refreshed Plan is based upon new economic data which continues to inform and sometimes shift our priorities and measure our performance against targets.
The Council continues to focus on its Corporate Strategy priority of infrastructure and Economic Development and to invest its resources to deliver as well as seek to attract external funding. The Plan for Growth remains a key component of our delivery of 9,000 jobs by 2026.
The Plan for Growth was approved by Cabinet in November 2017.
