Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Growth Action Plan Consultation

Closed 21 Jan 2019

Opened 26 Nov 2018

Feedback Updated 2 Apr 2019

We Asked

Bristol’s inclusive and sustainable economic growth strategy is focused on productivity-driven growth, together with the fair distribution of economic contributions and benefits. It also takes as a guiding principle that economic growth should not come at the expense of environmental and health standards. Accordingly, this strategy concerns itself with economic, social and environmental outcomes.
 
This Action Plan has been co-produced with a wide range of agencies and organisations across the city, but it will still benefit from further consultation to garner greater engagement and agreement. The aim is for the action plan to provide the framework for delivering the Strategy.

This Action Plan should serve as the starting point for developing and influencing a wide range of projects across Bristol City Council, the City Office and key delivery partners to guide a more focused and collaborative approach to inclusive and sustainable economic growth.

We consulted on the themes, priorities, and actions in this Action Plan.

You Said

We received 22 responses to the Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Growth Action Plan consultation.

We asked for comments on the proposed actions to deliver the Inclusive & Sustainable Economic Growth Strategy. You told us that many of the proposed actions were low priority. Due to this, we will focus on the actions identified as higher priority.

We asked for your views on the ways we will measure successful delivery. You told us that many of the metrics were unnecessary. Due to this, we have produced a more concise sets of metrics and will use them to report progress each year.

We Did

As a result of the online consultation and discussions with key stakeholders across the city, the action plan and associated metrics have been rationalised. There are now a set of 83 actions, across three timescales – short (to 2020), medium (to 2028) and long (to 2040) – and seven key metrics that will be used to report on the effectiveness of the action plan in delivering the strategic objectives. A full report on the consultation, together with the revised action plan and metrics, will be presented to Cabinet this summer.
