Charting Community Based Growth in Surrey

What’s on offer?

In a post-Covid environment there is a profound need to understand how Surrey as a county is going to evolve. This event launches the 'Charting Community-based Growth in Surrey' report from the University of Surrey's Centre for Britain and Europe. This event will expand on a highly acclaimed report into the local area, the role of growth and its different definitions and applications, and why growth needs to be genuinely community based. There is a real appetite amongst decision makers to hear what the local community think. The pandemic has made us look afresh at the special qualities and strengths of Surrey, including its people, communities, economy, natural environment, globally significant location, clarifying how we can continue to grow, and remain successful, attractive and competitive, nationally and globally. This event aims to harness the value of this report by discussing with the public how we should choose to collectively use it, and translate it into actual delivery.

What’s it about?

The event will bring together the report's authors, Surrey County Council, and a number of local and national decision makers, to consider the county's future journey in rejuvenating the high street, developing employment and skills, ensuring inward investment, and growing the green economy. The event will engage with the challenges of health and wellbeing in all areas of the county. We will discuss how to implement the key opportunities identified for fostering a place based localism for our community. The audience will have the opportunity to engage with our panel of guests and give input to the issues raised.
