About Suffolk Growth

Funded by Suffolk’s Public Sector Leaders (SPSL) Suffolk Growth brings together local authorities and wider partners to develop and deliver the shared inclusive growth agenda.

We work 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.

Our role 

Suffolk Growth works at both a strategic and operational level, providing links across our multi faceted growth agenda. We make the connections:

  • Between transport investment and the development of our economy,
  • To ensure public investment in infrastructure and business development support delivers best value (economic, social and environmental) for Suffolk’s firms.
  • To enable growth of the visitor economy and support the rethinking of our high streets to deliver for residents, businesses and tourists, including our ambition to become the UK’s first green tourist destination.

At an operational level we lead programmes of support to grow our economy and award investment and grant funding. We work with local authorities to enable project delivery with added value, and through our monitoring and evaluation work, promote integrated outcomes leading to a greater return on investment.
