City Deal, 25,000 net new jobs over 10 years
Industrial/manufacturing – made up of major new investment in petrochemicals/
advanced manufacturing, low carbon and environmental technologies, off-setting
employment decline in traditional sectors
Local demand - made up of construction, retail, leisure, business services, education
and health & care, influenced by a growing and ageing population
Growth sector service - made up of tourism/ leisure, digital, telecoms and creative;
logistics; financial and business services, higher education and public sector regional/
national service centres
In terms of diversification of the economy many of the new jobs will come from
stimulating entrepreneurs / new businesses and growing existing business through
bespoke support/ finance with an emphasis on commercialisation of products/
processes
Create a Business Growth Hub tasked with creating new business/jobs, across all
sectors.
An improvement in skills levels is required to enhance the attraction of the area to
companies and help retain and growth them. This will be tackled by establishing a
skills hub together with a relaxation of national rules to increase throughput in
producing the skills required by employers
Infrastructure improvements to rail, road, port and airport
