The Plymouth Resurgam Growth Board (PRGB) is a private sector led partnership, bringing together representatives from important city organisations to collaborate and drive forward the economic priorities of Plymouth. Its members include key businesses and business organisations, Plymouth’s three universities and City College, the Local Enterprise Partnership and Plymouth City Council. The current Chair is Richard Stevens.
Plymouth’s economic development has been steered by a Local Economic Strategy (LES) first published by Plymouth City Council in 2006. In 2014 the Plymouth Resurgam Growth Board oversaw a revision of the LES to ensure it better reflected the economic landscape we were working in. The result, looking forward to 2020, was six flagship areas of focus reflecting the city’s economic priorities. A 2020-24 refresh ‘Delivering Economic Growth 2020-25’ has now been finalised, is also the foundation for the economic policies of the Plymouth Plan, and can be viewed here:
