New and emerging sectors

Encouraging growth

These business sectors have been identified by the City as new and emerging economies where we are encouraging their growth.

Night-time economy

By 2030 the City is aiming for a transformation of business at night so that over 40% over people visiting the City at this time of day will be aged over 40 and 40% of businesses open will be shops.

Green economy

Adapting to climate change, energy security and water and resource use are driving change across the economy. It is estimated that some 240,000 to 340,000 new jobs may be created in this sector across the nation by 2030 with most being located in our major cities.
