Economic development - Dorset County Council
Councils in Dorset work together to support and develop our local economy. We also work alongside the private sector and other organisations through the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership.
Enabling economic growth
Our vision is for a strong and successful Dorset economy, with strong businesses offering a diverse range of jobs to skilled and valued workers.
The Enabling Economic Growth Strategy lays out our vision for the county to 2020.
European activity in Dorset
Our European Framework is there to ensure that European activity within Dorset County Council supports our corporate priorities.
Our objectives are to:
- support the Dorset County Council Corporate Plan by obtaining European funding
- ensure that European Union policies and programmes meet Dorset's needs
- exchange best practice with other areas to achieve best value and efficiency savings
EU policies affect all of Dorset County Council's services. Read an Introduction to Local Authorities and the EU
