Jobs: A thriving and inclusive local economy

The consultation has now closed.  We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the conversation. 

Over the coming weeks we will be reviewing your comments and thinking about how we can use your ideas as part of our plans for the borough.

Please continue to visit One Borough Voice for further updates.

As a Borough we have suffered from the decline of industry, leading to a fall in the number and quality of jobs in the Borough. Too many of our residents are in jobs that offer poor wages and little security, and there is a real lack of decent training opportunities, particularly for younger residents. Our role is to do what we can to improve the quantity and quality of jobs in the Borough, whilst supporting all residents, no matter their circumstances, to access these new opportunities.

Take a look at our initial proposals below to learn more about our plans; and tell us what you think!
