Introduction to Build Back Better Gloucestershire

There is no denying Gloucestershire is already a great place to live, work and do business, with a strong and resilient economy.


During the pandemic, communities across the county pulled together like never before. We saw innovation on an unprecedented scale as residents stepped up to face new challenges. We want to continue to work with our communities to build on their strengths and provide services and support that help them to flourish.

We want Gloucestershire to be a magnet for innovation and investment in a way that rivals the likes of Bristol, Cardiff and Swindon. We want to be a hub of skills, entrepreneurship, and business. To do this we must attract new talent and nurture the talent that we already have.

As we build out of the pandemic, we must do so with a greener, healthier economy. In order to create a Greener Gloucestershire, everyone must have the opportunity to make greener choices. It may be driving an electric vehicle that uses one of the 1000 EV charging points we are installing across the county, or cycling along our 26 mile cycle spine that stretches from Stroud to Bishop’s Cleeve.

Our recent shortlisting for the STEP Nuclear Fusion Reactor Bid demonstrates that Gloucestershire is ready to be at the forefront of opportunity and progress by attracting greener investments and creating greener jobs.
