Consultation Summary

Comments made here will present a rationale for the Council's Growth Programme, one of the four key pillars of Framework for Change, agreed by the Council in January 2017.
Strategic economic growth is also a key part of the Sefton 2030 Vision.  In 2016 when we asked our communities what mattered most to them, in their thousands they told us of their priorities and what was important to them for the future of the borough.  Ensuring Inclusive Growth has been a constant message throughout; other key messages include:
1) Investing in the infrastructure of the borough will help provide a strong, sustainable economy, be it regenerating town centres and high streets, improving highways and connections;
2) Developing urban village communities that have affordable housing and access to social activities;
3) Job opportunities is the important area that can support resilient people and places



There is recognition that the borough should do more to embrace economic growth, ensure that the benefits of growth are realised for all Sefton's communities and that new sources of income linked to growth should be targeted by Sefton Council.
This work follows on from the findings of the Sefton Economic Assessment in May 2017.  This is a factual statement that has helped inform the new economic strategy for Sefton.  Subjects in scope for consultation are business growth, enterprise, investment, innovation, job creation, physical regeneration, the coast, town centres, infrastructure, skills, employability and the social economy. 
Sefton Council recognises the importance of working in partnership with key partners and stakeholders from the private sector, communities, voluntary sector and businesses.
