The State of Stratford-on-Avon: Presentation to the Local Strategic Partnership

This morning, the Observatory gave a ‘State of the District’ presentation to the Stratford-on-Avon Local Strategic Partnership.  The presentation, put together with Stratford-on-Avon District Council, provided an overview of some of the key demographic, social and economic drivers affecting the district.

While emphasising that in broad terms the district continues to be an extremely desirable place to live and work, the presentation identified a series of issues that local partners might want to prioritise for attention over the next few years. It highlighted the pressures facing an ageing population, the mismatch between job vacancy types and the occupations jobseekers are looking for, housing affordability for the low paid and the extent of relative inequality that exists in certain parts of the district.

The presentation was followed by a number of workshops where partners were asked to identify future priorities for the district.
