Thursday 27 October 2022

West Suffolk Council is pleased to launch the new The location for website to promote business and investment in the area.

The website was created following feedback from current West Suffolk businesses and residents who highlighted to the council that we needed to be better at promoting West Suffolk, both to attract new business and investment but also to showcase the incredibly dynamic businesses we are proud to call ourselves home to.

We wanted to promote the image that West Suffolk is the location for the most ambitious businesses and offers a great lifestyle. The new website provides an initial flavour of the talent within our local business community and why they choose to do business in our area. We value the stories told by businesses about why this is a great place to do business and would be pleased to hear from other ambassadors. We have also represented our important sectors such as the horse racing industry, food and agri-tech as well as advanced manufacturing, technology and engineering, which make this such a unique place with companies which are exemplar in terms of their contributions to our local, and in many cases UK and global, economies.

The website signposts visitors to five main landing pages:

  • Land and premises, highlights the cutting-edge commercial property in the area
  • Growth and investment, points users to where we have invested and successful partnership working, plus
  • a news section with the latest updates.
