Sefton Economy

We are committed to developing an economy that connects Sefton to the City Region and beyond, in which businesses, employees, jobseekers and working age adults receive the help they need, and the benefits of growth are maximised for the people and places of the Borough.

In order to do this we have produced the following documents to identify the strengths and weaknesses in the economy and bring together local partners and organisations to work towards our goal of developing a strong economy in Sefton.

Local Economic Assessment

The Local Economic Assessment was produced to provide an evidence-based and objective assessment of the borough of Sefton. Identifying new opportunities and developing effective responses to these, drawing on an understanding of the position and challenges, and a shared aspiration.

Economic Strategy

This was the first economic strategy for Sefton in more than 10 years. It steers the work of all our partners as we strive to improve the long-term prospects of our economy, our businesses and our communities.
