What Should Dorset's Business Priorities Be?


8:35am 21st January 2014

It's time for business leaders in Dorset to tell county bosses what their priorities should be as they look to encourage growth, create jobs and increase prosperity.

An on-line survey's now open and the results will be put to councillors ahead of a budget setting meeting on February 13th.

The council's net budget will reduce by £13.6 million to £269.1M

Council Leader Spencer Flower, who will chair the event, said: “It’s absolutely vital that we do everything we can to support businesses to thrive and prosper, as well as encouraging new businesses to come to Dorset.

“Job opportunities, skills and training and economic prosperity are all essential in helping communities to thrive and ensuring local people have a good quality of life.

“I’m really looking forward to talking with business representatives, hearing about what they think is important and working with them to meet some of the challenges we all face.”
