Huntingdonshire district council have, over the last 15 years, prioritised economic growth and development, through a number of initiatives, i.e. the Economic Growth Plan 2013-2023. Huntingdonshire’s ambitious Local Plan 2020-2025 set out their strategy to build 20,100 additional houses and create 14,400 new jobs by 2036. Huntingdonshire benefits from a significant labour catchment, with a population of approximately 130,000 people between the ages of 16 to 74. According to the 2011 census, 95,000 of these inhabitants were economically active. The economic strength of the region is reflected in the low unemployment rate of 2.7%, which is significantly lower than the national average of 4.8% (March 2021 figures). Huntingdonshire’s workforce is made up of, for the most part, of highly skilled labour specialising in professional (16% of workforce), skilled (12%) and technical (14%) occupations. However, 7.5% of the workforce operate within the process plant and machine operatives’ occupation category.
