In a bid to attract new companies into Charnwood, the Council has launched a new initiative with the aim of creating a stronger local economy and provide more jobs for the local area.
inCharnwood has been developed to market the area to businesses, and is being used as the foundation for an inward investment prospectus, which will showcase the benefits of doing business here in Charnwood.
The prospectus outlines information about commercial development sites, skills and innovation, connectivity, quality of life and the local economy. It contains a number of ‘endorsements’ from local businesses as to why our borough is a great place in which to do business.
Businesses that would like a copy of the prospectus can contact the team on 01509 634534 or message the team on Twitter @inCharnwood.
A digital copy of the prospectus is available below.
