We work with partners across the county to develop the infrastructure required for sustainable economic growth.
The work of the Economic Growth Team is guided by Shropshire’s Economic Growth Strategy which is helping to deliver Shropshire Council’s Shropshire Plan, with a focus on the Healthy Economy section.
