Our economic framework

Our economic framework understands the economic priorities, plans and policies already shaped by City of York Council (CYC) and North Yorkshire Council (NYC), and uses them to build a framework of priorities and ambitions for the York and North Yorkshire Combined Authority that deliver across York and North Yorkshire.

There are three overarching ambitions:

  • Transition to carbon negative – a carbon negative, circular and more resilient economy.
  • Deliver good economic growth – a global, innovative, productive economy with strong and thriving businesses.
  • Ensure opportunities for all – a thriving and inclusive economy.
