Strategic Economic Plan

Strategic Economic Plan

Sheffield City Region (SCR) is developing a new Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) to set out how we plan to grow our economy, create new jobs, and build an even better place in which to live, work and invest.

Our current SEP sets out the City Region’s plans to transform our economy between 2015 and 2025. Good progress has been made against the original ambitions, but there is more to do. Developing a new strategy presents the opportunity for us to do this.

Evidence for the refreshed Strategic Economic Plan (SEP)

Economic evidence shows that the Sheffield City Region economy is growing, but not quickly enough. We know that our productivity is constraining our potential for growth.
