Local Employment and Supply Chain Opportunities

Business Opportunities

It is important that Chesterfield maximises the local employment and supply chain opportunities through regeneration and business growth.

Maximising employment & supply chain opportunities

Chesterfield has a number of key development opportunities during the next few years. Chesterfield Borough Council takes a proactive approach to drive forward regeneration projects and ensure that future regeneration projects take place and is able to support activity that seeks to maximise the opportunities available from this regeneration activity for Chesterfield businesses and residents, including:

  • Helping to create employment opportunities for local people in the construction and operation of the developments.
  • Helping to facilitate training of local people to enable them to access job opportunities created.
  • Enable local businesses to compete for contracts arising from development.
