Telford & Wrekin Council is poised to launch a tailor-made support package for businesses designed to rival enterprise zones elsewhere.
The Enterprise Telford pledge will provide a unique borough-wide offer to help ensure Telford competes on an equal footing with the national network of Enterprise Zones announced by the Government.
The council aims to match the commitment of investors with a fast, responsive, deal focused approach. This includes a ‘Hello Telford’ landing offer and options around finance, land, design and build, property, recruitment and skills. Enterprise Telford is supported by the Telford Business Board whose business sector champions play a key role in the promotion of Telford to potential investors and in supporting new investors.
Councillor Shaun Davies, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for Business, said, “Over the last two years, the economic picture in Telford and Wrekin has changed with new and exciting opportunities for growth. The Enterprise Telford pledge extends our offer to businesses through a bespoke package of support aimed at creating a competitive investment environment.”
