The Derbyshire Economic Strategy Statement (DESS) brings together the ambitions and growth objectives of Derbyshire partners and sets out the opportunities to drive economic growth. It has been developed collectively by Derbyshire partners and provides a framework for joint working and the prioritisation of delivery across the County. The strategy also recognises Government growth policy and the Local Enterprises Partnerships (LEPs) and sets out both Derbyshire’s economic offer and needs for any future national and EU investment.
DESS has been prepared following a comprehensive consultation process with Derbyshire Partners and review of local economic strategies and plans. This process culminated in two workshops with Cabinet Members and Local Authority officers in March 2014 to review and refine DESS objectives and priority actions.
Comments are now being invited on the proposed final strategy document, which can be viewed here:
- Do you have any suggested refinements to the descriptive text for the proposed economic zones (pg 13-16)?
- Are there any significant assets or opportunities that are missing or could be strengthened (pg 17-29)?
- Would you like to suggest any refinements to the text contained within the strategic objectives (notably the priority actions and focus sections within each) (pg 31-42)?
- Finally do you have any further suggested refinements to the document contents (please be as precise as possible citing paragraph numbers where relevant).
The deadline for consultation is 5pm, Friday 9th May 2014.
