The Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBS LEP) has launched its ‘Strategy for Growth’ white paper, which sets out how the LEP aims to unlock growth and prosperity in the area, including across Tamworth.
And businesses, the public and other interested organisations in Tamworth are now being urged to have their say on the white paper.
This can be done via an online questionnaire, a written submission or at one of the events being held. The first is for mid-sized businesses on October 10th. The closing date for responses is 16th November.
Leader of Tamworth Borough Council, Cllr Daniel Cook, added his support, “This is the opportunity for everyone living and working here to have their say on the strategy and, ultimately, help shape the way we are going to tackle key issues and deliver sustainable growth within Tamworth.
“The White Paper has been guided by existing data, new research, feedback taken at engagement events and expert commentary. We now want to test out our thinking with you.”
The White Paper goes into detail on the three pillars of business, people and place, identifying key objectives that need to be met in order to achieve the desired transformation.
