Derbyshire Economic Strategy Statement

The Derbyshire Economic Strategy Statement brings together the ambitions and growth objectives of Derbyshire partners and sets out the opportunities to drive economic growth.


It's been developed collectively by Derbyshire partners and provides a framework for joint working and the prioritisation of delivery across the county. The strategy also recognises government growth policy and the local enterprises partnerships. It sets out both Derbyshire’s economic offer and needs for any future investment.

DESS has been prepared following a comprehensive consultation process with Derbyshire partners and review of local economic strategies and plans.

The strategy has helped us meet one of its objectives as set out in our plan and has been formally endorsed by our Cabinet. The latest version is attached to this page.
