2018 marks a decade of successful, cutting-edge partnership working between Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils, culminating next year in the creation of a single ‘super district council’ delivering the best possible services for local communities across the whole of East Suffolk.
Both Councils recognise East Suffolk has a strong and diverse local economy with both outstanding economic assets and opportunities for future growth. Their Economic Growth Plan (2018-2023) sets out the framework to achieve this growth and they are proud to work to a vision that “businesses across East Suffolk will have the confidence to invest and grow, creating opportunities for people of all ages and improving further the quality of life in an outstanding environment”.
Reflecting their commitment to the delivery of this vision, they are pleased to announce the first ever East Suffolk Business Festival. Running from 29th October to 9th November, the Festival aims to raise the profile of the East Suffolk business community and seeks to connect business support and training agents together through a dedicated 10 day events programme.
To celebrate the finale of the Business Festival, Waveney District Council is delighted to be Headline Sponsors of our 2018 Business Awards and are sponsoring the highest accolade of the evening, the Business of the Year Award.
Our Headline Sponsors Waveney District Council wish to recognise and reward the most outstanding business that has entered our awards in 2018.
