Three surveys have been launched to gather the views of Ceredigion residents on developing the local economy. The surveys will help to develop a 15 year economic strategy to support opportunities to grow the local economy.
The surveys were launched on 13 December 2019 and will run until 31 January 2020.
One survey is aimed at Ceredigion business owners, and another at young people in Ceredigion. A third survey gathers the views of Ceredigion residents who don’t fall into the categories of the other two surveys. There is an opportunity to complete all three if they are relevant.
Councillor Rhodri Evans is the Cabinet member responsible for Economy and Regeneration. He said: “This is an exciting opportunity for Ceredigion to be ambitious by developing a strong vision for the future of our county. The council is committed to doing what we can to help develop the economy. We want to work in partnership with businesses and third sector organisations to build on the county’s strengths and create an environment where there are opportunities for people to start their own businesses and where our existing businesses can thrive and grow. We want to know what kind of support is needed and how we can help.”
“We also want to hear from young people in Ceredigion. We want to know what opportunities are needed to make staying in Ceredigion to be seen as a positive choice and to make sure that young people want to live here. We also want to make sure support is there for young people to have a career or develop a business idea here.”
Ceredigion County Council is in the process of developing a 15 year economic strategy to guide the council’s efforts to develop a vision for the future of the Ceredigion economy.
