The West of England Regional Strategy Discussion Document has been prepared by Officers at the West of England Combined Authority Office (WECA) but is the basis of a Strategy for the region governed by the West of England Joint Committee (Bath & North-East Somerset Council, Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council and South Gloucestershire Council). The paper sets out high-level plans for delivering economic growth for all, under three pillars - Businesses that succeed; World class skills for employment; Infrastructure fit for the future. Page 11 sets out a series of core objectives for the West of England region, summarising the scope of this paper.
The WECA Office are now holding an engagement process to enable businesses, organisations and others to engage with this strategy and give their views on how it can be improved to ensure the region can drive economic growth and improve the quality of life for all. Feedback can be made via an online survey which will be open for nine weeks, closing on 27th September 2017. https://www.westofengland-ca.org.uk/westrategy/.
