D2N2 has a clear strategic framework to support economic growth. We have identified four high-level strategic priorities that are relevant to all business in our area but are also particularly significant to the high growth businesses that research suggests are responsible for the bulk of private sector job creation.

Building on this strategic framework, we are consulted on the draft Growth Plan. In the Growth Plan  we focus our efforts on our Strategic Priorities and Areas of economic focus
