Economic and Skills Development Partnership
Bracknell Forest, unlike anywhere else in the Thames Valley, is fortunate to have a highly active business led partnership that covers the entire borough. This is called the Economic and Skills Development Partnership (ESDP).
The purpose of the ESDP is to facilitate and promote the continued economic development of Bracknell Forest. The partnership acts as the voice of business and brings together representatives from the private, public and education sectors.
The partnership recognises that it cannot and should not act in isolation, so that economic goals are achieved. Organisations that the partnership engage with (but may not sit on the ESDP membership) include:
- Thames Valley Berkshire LEP
- Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce
- Federation of Small Businesses
- and many others
Currently the partnership contains representatives from the following organisations, amongst others:
- Bracknell Forest Council
- Bracknell & Wokingham College
- Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce group
- The Knowledge Academy
- Silva Homes (formerly Bracknell Forest Homes)
