Essex Growth Model

Back to News


Essex County Council has appointed GENECON to develop a bespoke growth model to support prioritisation and decision-making on capital project investments across the County.  The appointment follows GENECON's advisory role with the County Council on Local Growth Fund business cases. The Growth Model will build a growth trajectory across the full range of housing and employment sites in Essex and identify the economic growth impacts of a full range of infrastructure proposals, including transport, flood defence works etc in terms of enabling and / or accelerating growth delivery.
