Local Economic Assessment (LEA)
The Local Economic Assessment(pdf, 4446KB) takes a holistic view of how the borough's economy works and connects to other places and issues. It does this by examining issues from the perspectives of residents, businesses and visitors, taking account of the vast range of data and knowledge that is currently available, alongside appropriate projections. It covers issues including types of business sectors, business growth, employment, workforce data, qualifications and commuting.
This Assessment is not a policy or a strategy: it does not put forward a view of the Council’s priorities. However, it will form an important part of the Council’s evidence base that will be used to inform policies and plans. It is also a useful document for business people that need local information for their business planning.
