Funded by Suffolk Public Sector Leaders (SPSL) Suffolk Growth is a partnership organisation that brings together local authority teams to develop and deliver our shared inclusive growth agenda.  The partnership works closely with New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (NALEP), Suffolk Chamber of Commerce (SCoC), the University of Suffolk, Suffolk Constabulary, and wider public sector teams, including communities and health.

In our 2019 Framework we set out our four agreed inclusive growth aims.  We have refreshed these aims in 2020 and they are set out below:

  • Suffolk’s Businesses: Make Suffolk an optimal location for business expansion, sustainability, and viability across all our sectors

  • Suffolk’s Employees: Meet identified skills & employment needs to facilitate inclusive economic growth & improve employment opportunities

  • Suffolk’s Communities: Create a consistent, efficient & transparent approach to planning leading to improved housing delivery and community development

  • Suffolk’s Connections: Secure investment in our economic & social infrastructure
