Staffordshire is being considered by the Government as a location for one of its new Investment Zones, it has been confirmed today.

The Investment Zones will aim to encourage investment and new economic activity, supporting growth and jobs.

Staffordshire County Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for economy and skills Philip White said:

It is hugely encouraging that the Government has announced that Staffordshire is being considered as a location for one of the new Investment Zones which formed a key part of the Chancellor’s growth plan announced today.

Working closely with our colleagues at all our district and borough councils, we have put a strong case forward for making a success of an Investment Zone, with a range of potential sites.

This could bring in millions of pounds’ worth of investment to our county and create thousands of new high-quality jobs. We look forward to working with the Government on the details of how an Investment Zone in Staffordshire could work to benefit local people.”

Staffordshire is one of 38 local authority areas under consideration.
