GROWING THE LOCAL ECONOMY AND JOBS
Getting our local businesses back on their feet after Covid has been a priority. But we’ve also not lost sight of the longer term, to attract companies to relocate to the area, by providing the facilities and support they need. For example, at Leamington’s Spencer Yard the new HQ of Cogent, a world class communications company, will open this summer following a major Council-led regeneration scheme, bringing hundreds of jobs.
We’ve also been at the forefront of plans for the West Midlands Gigafactory, vital to the future of our important automotive sector. Creating the new net-zero economy can’t wait for tomorrow, nor the leadership of others. We recognise that if our community is to enjoy a prosperous future, we need to be at the forefront championing investment in our district.
