Businesses in Rutland are being asked to complete an online survey that will help shape economic growth in the county over the next five years.

Rutland County Council is producing its economic strategy for 2014-2021 and wants local business owners to have their say on issues around growth, infrastructure and community development.

Results from the survey, which can be taken online at, will help inform priorities and actions as the council works towards building a sustainable, prosperous and diverse economy by 2021.

Portfolio holder for development and finance at Rutland County Council Coun Terry King (Con), said: “Rutland is already a great place to live, learn, work and visit.

“However it is vital that we have a growing economy in which all our business can flourish and where we can provide new and better opportunities for residents.

“Your input is needed to help us properly assess the challenges that are holding back growth in the county and whether supporting business growth and retention, maximising prosperity for all, creating the right physical environment for growth and attracting inward investment should be our key objectives.

“We also want to know what actions you think will help us meet these objectives and help us to achieve the vision for 2021 for the county.”

The survey can be done online at any time up until Monday, November 10 and only takes a few minutes to complete
