The Nottingham Growth Plan, launched in July 2012, promotes job creation and economic growth in the city.

The Growth Plan sets out a series of measures for driving the economy forward. It is the fruit of a collaboration between some of the city's most senior public and private sector figures, based on solid academic research, good business sense and valuable consultation. It is ambitious but achievable and holds the key to creating significant growth across the city, unleashing enterprise that will bring benefits for generations to come.
