Earlier this month, the Countryside Alliance submitted evidence to the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Select Committee's Post-Pandemic Economic Growth inquiry.

Rural communities are uniquely placed to deliver both economic and environmental objectives. Our submission explored how both those aims can be achieved by investing in infrastructure projects, such as digital, and up-skilling the rural workforce. Our submission includes a case study that demonstrates how one rural business sector delivers both economically and environmentally. You can read our submission here.
