Originally launched in 2012, the Leicester Economic Action Plan set out aims for job creation, inward investment and business support in the city up until 2020.

The economic action plan has helped guide and support the city’s growth since 2012, but it is now time to renew it and set out new ambitions for the next four years.

The city council’s new economic action plan (2016-2020) has been developed to encourage and support growth in Leicester. Titled ‘Leicester: Great City’, this document reflects the city's growing ambitions, recognising the achievements that have occurred over the past four years.

We would like to hear your views on this new action plan.
