The council plays an important role in helping the local economy to prosper by supporting and regulating businesses in the area.
The economic development and tourism team works closely with a growing number of agencies and partnerships to achieve this. It also makes sure that council strategy, policies and practices are influenced by the need for sustainable economic development.
