The Council seeks to focus on supporting the development of a robust and diverse economy and sustainable communities across Northumberland.
This includes the Northumberland Economic Strategy and the Northumberland Economic Assessment. This is one of the functions provided by the Economy and Regeneration Service within the County Council.
The service also acts as a co-ordinating point between council services, its delivery bodies (including Advance Northumberland) and regional organisations, including the North of Tyne Combined Authority and North East Local Enterprise Partnership.
The new 2019-2024 strategy was formally approved by the councils cabinet in December 2018. The new strategy updates the previous 2015-2020 strategy which was refreshed during 2018 involving engagement and discussion with elected members, partners and businesses. The final published executive summary of the strategy, full document and supporting information is available below:
