Doncaster's economic strategy

The council and its partners have developed an economic strategy for the borough to provide focus and direction for the economy up to 2018.

It is a statement of intent about the opportunities and priorities that Doncaster will pursue to deliver economic growth and jobs as part of a long-term economic vision.

As the second largest economy in the City Region, it is important that Doncaster plays its full part in the creation of a more balanced and resilient local and regional economy.  It is for this reason that the Economic Growth Plan is set in the context of the wider Sheffield City Region.

The strategy builds upon the robust evidence base provided by Doncaster’s Local Economic Assessment (LEA) and reflects the changing economic and political conditions.

The plan covers three themes:

  • Business growth: to create the conditions which encourage business investment and innovation to Doncaster

  • Place: to harness Doncaster’s asset base to support economic growth, including its urban centre, excellent connectivity, green space and large amount of land available

  • Skills: to ensure that the residents of Doncaster have the skills and abilities that current and future businesses require

This is underpinned by a delivery plan which sets out the actions required to deliver the jobs and growth. This delivery plan is currently being updated to ensure it reflects the latest actions and projects that the council and its partners are focusing on to achieve our economic vision.
