Economic Development


Supporting the economic development of the District is the Council's top priority. We aim to put businesses at the heart of what we do to help to enable economic growth and maximise employment opportunities.

The performance measures included under this heading provide information on the state of the local economy in the District. Winchester has five main economic sectors: tourism, land based industries, retail, services & public administration and knowledge & creative industries. Tourism as one of the five core sectors of our economy, identified in our Economic Strategy is an area in which the City Council delivers direct services. Information is therefore included on the level of usage of the City Council's visitor information service.

Further performance measures will be added as the data becomes available.
