The Vision focuses on building strong fundamentals based around four key priorities:
Some practical examples of the strategic work areas the WLA is leading on:
The Vision for Growth is led by the West London Economic Prosperity Board, a cross-party, Joint Committee consisting of the Leaders of the seven member boroughs of the West London Alliance. The Board provides direction to the West London Growth Directors' Group who have responsibility for delivering the Vision for Growth at both a strategic and an operational level in partnership with the business community, investors, London and national government.
The latest position on delivering the Vision for Growth action plan can be found in this February 2018 progress report.
