Corporate Plan 2023 - 2028

Investing in our economy to provide sustainable opportunities for employment, innovation and growth

We want Gateshead to have strong local economic outlook, with more businesses, good jobs, and inward investment.

With this strong economic outlook, we want to tackle unemployment and ensure residents have skills and qualifications to enable them to access opportunities.

We will support regeneration and development opportunities that come forward and will support investors to do so. Creating a fairer, green and more resilient economy at the heart of this work.

It is important to maximise the visitor and rural offer that exists within the borough and embrace the wider regional cultural offer.

The council will work with neighbouring councils to support the formation of a North East Mayoral Combined Authority and seek to maximise the opportunities that Devolution for the North East provides residents, business and partners.

All of which provides a strong platform for our ambitions to tackle health inequalities within Fair Gateshead.
