The City Vision partnership identified the need to consider our local economy in more detail and in 2019 Norwich City Council, University of East Anglia and other organisations in the local economy collaborated to form the Norwich Good Economy Commission.
This is a unique forum for our community to come together and address some of the problems in our city’s economy, by creating a space for sustainable, innovative projects, backed by consistent research and evidence.
The Commission has been researching, testing initiatives and evaluating existing approaches, whilst learning from best practice across the UK, to leave a lasting impact on people’s lives. The experience will drive a change in Norwich by altering the delivery of existing services and programmes, changing anchor institution practices and building new collaborations. This will help attract additional funding and coordinate existing resources to tackle key problems in our city and improve our lives.
