LISTEN: Innovative vision leads the way for Guildford

Published at 12:20pm 19th March 2019.

A new Innovation Strategy embracing a digital future and reflecting changes in society to support the local economy is to be adopted by Guildford Borough Council.

The strategy will be updated and reviewed annually. It follows the Council’s corporate plan, addressing three key priorities in 2019/20: 

  • Facilitating smart places infrastructure across the borough
  • Guildford as the Innovators’ location of choice
  • Future Guildford – value for money and efficiency in Council services

Find out more from Councillors Gordon Jackson and Nikki Nelson Smith:

Leader of the Council and Lead Councillor for Planning and Regeneration, Cllr Paul Spooner, said:

"Navigating through these challenging times will be easier with this clear vision for innovation.

"We must continue to move forward and develop and enhance our services by investing in new technologies to encourage and support behavioural change."

The Council will continue to progress its work with partners across all sectors and the strategy recognises the importance of a range of organisations and businesses, particularly the University of Surrey where researchers are undertaking ground-breaking research.

The Council currently recognises and celebrates innovation in the borough with two successful annual events: the Innovation Awards for businesses and the free Innovate Guildford Science and Arts Festival for families at Glive, which is taking place on Saturday 23 March 2019.
