Strategic Priorities

Our Strategic Economic Plan and Growth Plan focuses on enabling major growth and transformation in the economy of the sub-region and the delivery of new homes and job creation.

The plan outlines four major projects which will benefit from the Local Growth Fund:

  • Atlantic Gateway in Cheshire – the world trade, logistics, business and innovation corridor stretching from Deeside and Merseyside through the northern part of Cheshire and Warrington to Manchester.
  • Cheshire Science Corridor – a string of interconnected centres of excellence located in Cheshire which are or have the potential to contribute significantly to national innovation in science.
  • Crewe High Growth City – placing Crewe at the heart of HS2 as a superhub central to the country’s major infrastructure network.
  • Energy – exploiting our unique assets to accelerate development of a nationally-significant energy cluster.
