Factors affecting the response to growth include how the characteristics of a place influence the local economy, the skills mix, the entrepreneurial tradition of the population, and the quality of infrastructure. 

What was Goole and Area Local Growth Partnership?

Goole and Area Local Growth Partnership was an executive group of organisations seeking to secure economic progress. The Partnership contributed towards raising the profile of the area with a strong focus on attracting investors, and was instrumental in connecting agendas, and lobbying for support whilst encouraging community spirit and civic pride. 

At the January 2020 Partnership meeting it was agreed that the Goole and Area Local Growth Partnership cease to exist and that a Goole Town Deal Board be established.
