Sheffield City Growth Board
Never has it been more important for a city to have a strong economy.
Under the devolution agenda of the current government cities and towns will increasingly be required to raise their own funding through business rates and council task. Sheffield is far from being self sufficient in that respect.
The Sheffield Growth Board is hosted by Business Sheffield but chaired by an independent business person. Its aim is to help develop a strategic economic masterplan for the city and oversee its implementation. This is extremely close to the aims of the Chamber and we have been active members for several years.
