A new plan to bring jobs and prosperity to the city was approved by Portsmouth City Council at their Full Council meeting on 15 October 2019.
The city’s economic development and regeneration strategy will help businesses and organisations in the city to work to a common goal for the next ten years or more.
It was finalised after a year of consultation, research and working with economic experts. Residents, businesses and local organisations were able to give their feedback, to make sure the final strategy would meet the needs of the city. By having an agreed strategy, the city will be in a stronger position to claim funding from government and boost economic growth.
The overall aim is to make Portsmouth Britain’s premier waterfront technology and innovation city – a great place to invest, learn, live, work and visit, and the most attractive place for starting, growing or locating a business.
