Did you know there are plans for something called an ‘Enterprise Area’ in Bath?
This space alongside the river and running from Manvers Street in Town all the way to the Newbridge industrial estate has been designated as a key zone for economic growth. Apparently it has the ability to deliver 65% of the District’s growth by 2026, concentrating on the high growth sectors such as creative industries, software and technology. The aim is to encourage new businesses to settle in this area of Bath by focusing resources, investment, infrastructure, etc.
B&NES have also set up an ‘Economic partnership’ that spans council, education and private sector representatives who, amongst other things, should oversee the Economic Strategy for B&NES 2010-2026.
So… Will this help? What would you do as well/instead?
