Economic Development

Advice and help to develop West Berkshire businesses


Maintaining a strong local economy is one of the strategic priorities outlined in our Council Strategy. Our pdf icon WBC Economic Development Strategy [11Mb] was approved by Executive in April 2020. However, in light of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our local economy, we are in the process of updating this. It is expected that this updated version will be considered by the Executive in June 2021.
