Take part in Central Bedfordshire Council’s Survey
Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) is developing an economic strategy that recognises the short-term impacts of COVID-19, but focuses on the longer-term direction for the local economy and wants residents and local businesses to help it shape the strategy.
Along with their Sustainability Plan, the new strategy is an important pillar to support their Vision for Central Bedfordshire.
Last year, along with a broad range of stakeholders, residents and partners, they began working together to develop a shared Vision for 2050. It seeks to ensure they maintain and enhance what is great about Central Bedfordshire, but also embraces the future and how our lives and the world of work are changing.
CBC want a prosperous, thriving, innovative economy underpinned by a skilled workforce with a culture of innovation. They want to encourage a diverse range of flourishing businesses along
They want an economy that is based on seizing opportunities for all, led by a green recovery. So they want to hear your views on how you think they can do that.
They want to continue to be a great place for business – especially SMEs (small or medium-sized enterprise) which bring investment, employment opportunities and vibrancy to our towns and villages.
They want an education system that is truly inclusive, closes skill gaps, helps our young people into great jobs and supports our older generations with lifelong learning.
They’ve also identified a number of specific areas that they believe are essential building blocks to achieve our Economic Strategy as well as their Vision for 2050. But they want to be sure they’ve chosen the right ones and would like your assistance in ranking them in order of importance in supporting a sustainable economy.
Your views whether as individual, a local business or local organisation are important to them. So please take the time to complete their survey.
