Leeds Inclusive Growth Strategy 2017 – 2023

The Leeds Inclusive Growth Strategy sets out how Leeds City Council, the private sector, universities, colleges and schools, and social enterprises in the city will work together to grow the Leeds economy ensuring that everyone in the city contributes to, and benefits from, growth to their full potential. It sets out how the city intends to promote a positive, outward looking image on the global stage seeking to increase inward investment, exports and tourism.

We have set out 12 “big ideas” that act as an action plan to encourage inclusive growth in the city, these are focused on supporting people, places and productivity. Growth sectors have also been identified that will help deliver our ideas, they cover a large part of the Leeds economy and a range of jobs at all skill levels. This is a strategy for the whole city, and in this spirit we want to offer partners the chance to pledge committing their time, expertise or support to deliver inclusive growth, some stakeholders have already responded and their pledges are incorporated in the document.

The consultation period runs until October 16th.
