Invest in Wiltshire will help locally-based businesses create, expand and improve their premises, and also become more productive, increasing supply of suitable workspaces for sustainable growth.
The scheme aims to unlock opportunities for growth by increasing the attractiveness of Wiltshire as a business location, providing higher value jobs and boosting productivity. The scheme will also help businesses to reduce their carbon emissions and move towards a net zero economy.
Invest in Wiltshire aims to bring employment closer to where people live, and utilise opportunities from economic changes, as businesses repurpose and reuse assets, and look to become more productive.
