Decision Maker: Jobs and Economy Committee
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
The Committee discussed the Stapleford Town Investment Plan, and voiced concern that it did not adequately deal with the issues of job creation, resilience or vision. It was noted that there was much to be commended about the plan, in particular the level of detail about employment in the Stapleford area. There was also discussion about the uncertainty about HS2.
Debate progressed, and it was noted that the people of Stapleford had been key in driving the plan in the direction of cycling, town centre improvement and an enhanced recreational offer. It was stated that skills needed investment to attract highly skilled jobs to the area. There followed a discussion about future engagement and consultation. It was considered that some changes could be made to make the document more likely in succeeding to get funding from the Towns Deal Fund.
RESOLVED that the Stapleford Town Investment Plan be APPROVED.
