Jobs Growth

Evidence gathered for the local plan has investigated both the “business as usual” scenario for jobs growth in Greater Norwich and the potential for enhanced growth. Our local economy continues to do well, and in the period 2015 to 2018 estimates suggest that around 15,000 jobs were delivered in the Greater Norwich area. This is an increase of around 8,000 jobs on the ‘business as usual’ estimates for the Greater Norwich economy. For the plan period of 2018 to 2038 the Draft Strategy suggests a target for at least 33,000 additional jobs.
