Surrey Economic Strategy 2030 Update pdf icon PDF 585 KB

    • Share this item

    At the end of 2019, Surrey County Council and key stakeholders came together through the Surrey Economic Commission to consider evidence related to the Surrey economy with the intention to refocus attention on the Surrey geography and to understand what story the economic data told about the economic position of Surrey. The intention was for the Commission to present its findings and recommendations to support the production of a Surrey Economic Strategy early in 2020, however the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the economy required that the original strategy was paused whilst a revised consideration of the economic position of Surrey relative to the UK economy was undertaken. The development of a new Surrey 2030 Economic Strategy has started and this report provides an update on progress of that work, the wider strategic context and alignment with other related activity with a view to bringing a final strategy for approval in December 2020.

    The Prudential Ride London Surrey (PRLS) cycling events were conceived as an Olympic Legacy and have taken place in Surrey annually since August 2013. The event requires one-day road closures to support a traffic free event through Elmbridge, Woking, Guildford and Mole Valley which can impact on businesses and the provision of services to local people. Cabinet now needs to decide whether Surrey should continue to host the main 100-mile closed road event within Surrey beyond 2021. This decision has been informed by a public consultation undertaken by the Council ending in February 2020. This report sets out an overview of the impacts of the event, the results of the consultation as well as a proposed way forward.
