County level and local authority priorities

As well as embracing the objectives for the 2021 Build Back Better Plan which sets out the targets for the next ten years, here are some local priorities that we are focussing on.

Key highlights

  • Clean Growth – focus on supporting initiatives which help embed clean growth principles into business activities e.g. environmental science, marine innovation, zero carbon targets and climate aware initiatives. 
  • Digital Innovation – Smart tech developments and adoption in all sectors, a key target for all locations with Exeter leading growth in this area.
  • Advanced / Specialised manufacturing – continued focus on promoting growth of specialised and advance manufacturing.  As this sector expands so does the upskilling of the workforce.
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Clusters – expanding on University sponsored research and innovation, incubating new businesses to apply this innovation.
  • Green recovery – Sustainable and Eco-friendly business – Creating focus and supporting initiatives to increase levels of awareness and encourage these business values.
  • Super-fast broadband -distribution to all areas. Major advancements in most locations, now focussing more on remote locations.
