By Rob Freeman | 22nd October 2020
Cotswold District Council has launched a consultation on its Green Economic Growth Strategy.
After being approved by the council's cabinet, the authority is seeking views on the priorities in the strategy which is designed to help the Cotswold economy recover from the coronavirus pandemic and transform over the next four years.
Priorities including growing key sectors such as agritech, cyber/digital and green technologies while the strategy is committed to enabling town centres to thrive, supporting the visitor economy, improving infrastructure, boosting skills and training and attracting inward investment.
Councillor Tony Dale, cabinet member for economy and skills, said: "Economic development is at a crossroads in the Cotswold District - we can sit back and let others decide our future or take destiny into our own hands.
"We aim to promote a living, growing, exciting economy based on community business with the green revolution at its heart.
"Our aim is for it to be a magnet for high net worth companies looking to relocate away from cities as the digital world develops."
He continued: "We will be engaging with, encouraging and enabling members of our communities who want to take a lead or be a part of delivering a sustainable economy."
