Worcestershire County Council- Open for Business

Did you know that Worcestershire has one of the fastest growing local economies in the country? Therefore being “Open for Business" remains the key priority for the Council. This is vital if both individuals and businesses are to achieve their full potential and if Worcestershire is going to continue to prosper.

A successful and growing local economy will generate wealth for residents and businesses, and this growth will increase Council income, enabling us to invest more in those areas that our residents and businesses tell us are most important to them. Worcestershire County Council have worked in partnership with Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (WLEP) to develop a 10-year Strategic Economic Plan which sets out the ambitions through to 2025.
