Local Growth Zones

A local growth zone is a rural alternative approach to an enterprise zone.

This model of local growth zones has considered alternative options which could help to support jobs and encourage economic growth and has provided an opportunity to trial various pilot projects which are sensitive to local economic circumstances and growth challenges.

There are two zones covering the geographical areas of Powys and the Teifi Valley and each local growth zone was assigned a task and finish group. Both groups, independently submitted recommendations to the Minister for Economy, Science and Transport.
