Leeds City Council consults public to improve regional economy

The second phase of the citywide conversation to help identify skills needed now and for the future of the Leeds economy is underway.

Following on from the initial phase which ran in September, the second stage has now begun at and will run until November 25.

The conversation is open to those who have already taken part, as well as those who are yet to join in and want to further discuss and develop the ideas and views put forward to shape the Future Talent Plan for the city.

The consultation aims to help the city offer good sustainable jobs, skill development, and maximise infrastructure and technology.

A spectrum of people took part in the first part of the conversation, with more than 11,000 visits to the webpage, and over 800 contributions made to the debate.

In this phase, to develop the conversation further, contributions from the 16-24 and over-65s age groups have been especially encouraged.

Deputy Leader and executive member for economy, culture and education of Leeds City Council Councillor Jonathan Pryor said: “Thanks to everyone who took part in the first phase of the Future Talent Leeds conversation.

“We had lots of great ideas and suggestions put forward which we want to now develop further to ensure we are on the right track to embrace the future and continue to be a compassionate city with a strong economy offering opportunity for all.

“The more people we hear from across all areas and sectors of the city the more effective the plan will be, so we look forward to as many people as possible joining the debate and helping us shape the future of our economy and our city.”
