Working for Woking attracts over 120 businesses
30 January 2013
The Council is holding the breakfast briefing to enable members of the business community to hear what the Council is doing to support the local economy.
The session will be introduced by local businessman, Mike Webb of Repropoint, before the Council's senior management team and political leaders give detail on Woking's economic development plans and open the floor to the business community to hear their views.
The event is part of local authorities' statutory requirement to consult local business rate payers on its proposals for expenditure for the forthcoming financial year. In addition, topics for discussion will include efforts to grow the economy, and major developments in the Borough.
Speakers will include the Leader of the Council, Cllr John Kingsbury, as well as members of the Corporate Management Group, including Chief Executive, Ray Morgan, Deputy Chief Executive, Douglas Spinks, and Chief Finance Officer, Steve Bonsor.
The Council has an important role in providing a strategic and political lead in encouraging business development growth and inward investment, and creating jobs. All business rate payers are encouraged to attend the consultation, and add their views to how the Council can stimulate the local economy and create wealth and opportunities that the whole community can share.
