Supporting inclusive economic growth
Setting an economic vision for Sunderland
Sunderland City Council
To create 6,000 jobs in Sunderland, Sunderland City Council have set a vision to be “an entrepreneurial university city at the heart of a low-carbon regional economy”. There will be a focus on a small number of important sectors and the city centre, and an International Advanced Manufacturing Park is in development to ensure that the necessary infrastructure is in place to support this vision. The city has also recently opened a landmark bridge, Northern Spire, across the river Wear, which is part of improving road infrastructure between the city centre and port.
