There is an opportunity to restart, regrow and reset our economy to enable Devon to emerge a stronger, more dynamic place to live and work.

Our Focus

We will help Devon’s economy to recover and drive economic opportunities that benefit everyone and generate inclusive and sustainable growth.

We will do this by

  • Working with District Councils to submit bids to the Levelling Up Round 2 and maximise the benefits of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
  • Maximising the opportunities of the Plymouth and South Devon Freeport to unlock inward investment and create jobs.
  • Working with at risk sectors to support skills and business development​
  • Work with Plymouth City, Torbay and District Councils to conclude the Devon/Plymouth/Torbay Devolution Deal with Government.​

How we will measure our impact

  • Deliver the Community Renewal Fund projects and support Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership to deliver on the skills plan.
  • Deliver targeted activity to sectors, securing additional funding and resource to reduce the skills gap.
