The Business and Innovation Strategy Action Plan 2017 to 2020 details how the Vale of White Horse council will support businesses in the district. This follows a widespread survey of small and medium sized businesses which asked businesses about their needs and growth aspirations (SME Business and Innovation Strategy Final Report March 2017)
About the Action Plan
The Action Plan is divided into four categories, outlining why action is needed and how the district council will achieve this. The four categories are:
- Business support – making businesses aware of opportunities to grow and ensure they benefit from support that is available
- Skills and labour force – supporting businesses struggling to attract and retain staff, particularly young people, and address key skills gaps
- Infrastructure and planning – support businesses concerned with infrastructure issues and improve access to high speed broadband
- Business space – address concerns over the lack of good quality and affordable workspace and raise awareness of what is available.
