Enabling Doncaster people, places and businesses to enjoy improved prosperity by participating in a growing and productive economy.
Delivering economic growth that benefits all people, places and businesses is a core priority in the Doncaster Growing Together Plan.
Team Doncaster has worked together to create a stronger economy which has enabled a record number of residents to secure employment. Investments across the Borough, including the Great Yorkshire Way, iPort, DN7 Unity and in our town centre, mark a new era for the Borough as a more outward looking place and economy with a wide variety of opportunities.
However, the benefits of growth are not yet reaching all people and places. In response to this, in November 2018 Team Doncaster agreed an Inclusive Growth Strategy (IGS) to sharpen the focus on creating growth that benefits the whole Borough. It is a long-term Strategy with actions we will progress over the next 3 years.
At the core of the IGS are 3 key elements which need to combine to create inclusive growth: participation, productivity and prosperity. These are captured in the Mission:
‘To enable Doncaster people, places and businesses to enjoy improved prosperity by participating in a growing and productive economy’.
Delivery will focus on six Drivers for Growth – which combine established priorities with new areas of focus. These are:
- Quality of Place
- Industry Specialisms
- Education & Skills
- Better Work & Jobs
- Social Value & Community Wealth Building
- Reaching Vulnerable People & Places
