The Spelthorne Economic Strategy was refreshed in February 2020. It builds upon the first 3 years of the 2017-2022 Economic Strategy and continues to focus on prioritising the key needs for business to settle, grow and thrive. Through the strategy the Borough aims to realise its ambitions and release its potential as a leading economy not just in Surrey but the wider sub-region.
In November 2017 the government launched an Industrial Strategy designed to strengthen the five foundations of productivity: ideas, people, infrastructure, business environment and places. This strategy recognises those ambitions and are referenced within this refreshed strategy. The health of the Spelthorne economy has shown remarkable growth over a number of years, as evidenced by our position as 59th out of 379 local authorities, putting the Borough in the top 16% of local authorities in the UK for competitiveness.
