This strategy sets out six strategic economic objectives which Waverley Borough Council feel will help them achieve sustained prosperity for their residents and businesses.

Their objectives fit with the local and sub-regional policy context, with the key challenge remaining the achievement of a balanced approach to housing and employment that does not adversely affect the Borough’s character and attractiveness.

The report offers a useful context for economic activity in the borough and confirms that small businesses are the lifeblood of Waverley’s economy.

The Borough has a higher than average proportion of younger businesses, with 45% of businesses in Waverley being up to 10 years old (compared to the national average of 35%) and 76% being up to 20 years old (compared to the national average of 58%).
