Why do we need a Newbury EDC?
Newbury West Berkshire has fallen behind competing towns in the Thames Valley and along the M4 corridor. And yet, the region has so much to offer businesses, families and individuals whether they are looking to work, live or visit. The EDC will:

  • promote and sustain economic development;
  • harness public and private sector interests;
  • generate private funding;
  • engage all stakeholders;
  • work to establish Newbury West Berkshire as a ‘destination’.

How are we funded?
Newbury West Berkshire is funded primarily through private trusts and organisations. This allows us to be completely a/political and independent of political agenda – we act for the public good.

Our sources of income are:

  • voluntary membership (co-investment)
  • grants, sponsorship and donations
