Amber Valley has “huge potential for economic growth” according to a Local Government Association 2014 report but wants to tackle key issues such as high unemployment areas, the need for higher end jobs skills, and quality expansion room for commercial and residential development.

D2N2 is one of a number of UK Local Enterprise Partnerships, which are locally-owned partnerships between local authorities and businesses, playing a central role in deciding local economic priorities and undertaking activities to drive economic growth, and create local jobs. Its overall target is to support the creation of 55,000 new jobs in its area – including Amber Valley – by 2023.

Peter and David heard how Amber Valley proposes to use its positive aspects – including excellent transport links and areas of outstanding natural beauty – to drive economic regeneration in the area.

D2N2’s David Ralph said: “We had a very positive meeting with the leaders of the regeneration team and look forward to seeing how their ideas will be developed inthe future, with D2N2’s support.”
