Economic Growth Strategy 2019-2022

The City Council’s Economic Growth Strategy (2019-2022) has been created to demonstrate how the city council will deliver the development of Gloucester’s local economy, through an extensive programme of activities intended to stimulate and support local growth.

Our ambition is to see Gloucester become the leading small city in the UK, with a distinct economic identity that sits alongside high levels of business growth and prosperity. This will be achieved by supporting business inward investment, stimulating local employment and skills development, and creating a high-quality place through asset-based regeneration.

If you would like to receive further information on business matters in the city, or if you have any further questions about this strategy, please email us at
