Strategies and economic information

Rural economic strategy

The local rural economy offers many opportunities to grow strong and sustainable businesses. This can improve employees' health and wellbeing and their quality of life.

We have a rural economic strategy, which was approved in May 2017. 

Our strategy's five core policies are:

  • affordable housing and sustainable communities
  • infrastructure for enterprise
  • landscape management and countryside vision
  • green space, health and wellbeing for better quality of life
  • energy policy, generation and supply
