NEWS RELEASE FROM WECA
Residents and organisations in the West of England have just a few weeks remaining to comment on a draft strategy for the region.
Launched on Wednesday July 26, by West of England Mayor Tim Bowles and Interim Chair of the Local Enterprise Partnership, Professor Steve West, the vision for the region is focused on economic growth to benefit every resident.
During the summer individuals and organisations have been able to make comments online and take part in drop-in sessions across the region. The closing date for comments is midnight on Wednesday September 27.
The draft strategy is available on the West of England Combined Authority website – www.westofengland-ca.org.uk/WEstrategy/– where there is also an online questionnaire to provide feedback.
Two remaining sessions for one-to-one discussions about the strategy take place as follows:
