Looking to a vibrant, resilient economy:
If you're a local business, you might be interested in another survey the hospitality industry in the South West has put together - "to collect more hard evidence regarding the impact of Covid-19 and what support businesses need for their future survival and growth after Lockdown... to lobby for future sector support."
Sidmouth meanwhile can be looking to the 'digital and creative industries' to maximise opportunities as more of us work from home - and as we look to Sidmouth as a town of festivals and new creative ventures such as the Fishermen’s Shed Space.
And Exmouth is looking at an e-delivery bike scheme - which Sidmouth will be watching over the next two months of its feasibility study.
There are other projects aiming to boost the local economy being worked on: more later as they progress. See also the VGS news pages.
