Plymouth economy plays a key role in the Plymouth Plan which sets out targets for 18,600 new jobs, increasing shopping space, employment land and skills.
There are a number of exciting major developments including developing employment land in the north of the city and at Language and Oceansgate, a 35 hectare site on the southern edge of Devonport Dockyard. Oceansgate will bring together marine-based businesses to create a world-class hub for marine industries, with opportunities for research, innovation and production in a collaborative environment.
This is a selection of data and analysis about the economy.
