Herefordshire Council is working with partners from across the county to develop a new Big Economic Plan (2022-2050). The aim is to generate a practical vision, focussed priorities and clear actions for the first few years. There is just time to complete the survey which is open until Friday 6 January 2023.

The Council want to hear from a range of people across the county. So far, engagement has included interviews and workshops with over 100 different people from community groups, young people’s groups, businesses, arts organisations, investors, NHS and elected members. This has informed the draft vision and priorities, and the Council would now like to hear from you.
