Growing Our Economy
The South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority is ambitious. We are seeking to transform our economy, to connect our businesses and people to economic opportunity, to build a stronger, greener and fairer economy, and to strengthen our reputation as a place where people want to live, work and invest.
We are working towards a refreshed Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) PDF 5.1Mb - that sets out how our vision to grow South Yorkshire’s economy over the next 20 years. It outlines how we will build and sustain a competitive economy that unlocks growth and prosperity, creating a region that can survive and thrive.
Alongside the SEP sits our recently published Renewal Action Plan (PDF 10Mb) which sets out how we can kick-start South Yorkshire’s social and economic fightback from the coronavirus pandemic, with an immediate £1.7bn investment in the region’s people, businesses and places.
