The 2018-2023 strategy was developed following extensive public consultation and also reflects previous and upcoming work, for example consultations via the Future Talent Plan, Innovation Arc, Local Plan Update and Transport Strategy. The feedback from these consultations and resulting pieces of work were fed into the development of the Inclusive Growth Strategy.
An engagement event brought together the Inclusive Growth Partnership, which took place in January 2023 with an update in July. This allowed cross-sectoral representatives to input into the development.
