Atlantic Gateway's Priorities
Infrastructure supports and drives growth. Investment in world class infrastructure is essential to close the UK's productivity gap with the rest of the world.
Atlantic Gateway has championed investment in infrastrcuture, especially transport investment. We believe that better international and national connectivity is vital for the efficient movement of people and goods. Transport for the North has been established to develop a Northern Transport Vision and investment programme to improve the North's long term transport network. Atlantic Gateway is proud to contribute to the ongoing development of these proposals.
Atlantic Gateway continues to suport the development of high growth sectors which are important drivers of economic growth and prosperity. It has championed the high growth sectors of freight and logistics and the science and innovation. Both of which were identified in the Northern Powerhouse Independent Economic Review as being critical sectors to improve productivity and job creation. Atlantic Gateway has a major role to play in the creation of a more successful Northern economy.
Sustainable development is central to Atlantic Gateway; it is focused on long term sustained development and not short term solutions. It is proud of its Parklands Prospectus and its work with partners from within Atlantic Gateway and its national and international work to champion the creation of high quality places to live, work, play and invest in.
