Liberal Democrats will give long-term sustainable growth a significantly higher priority. We will work with the Local Enterprise Partnership and local business groups to attract new companies to Dorset that add real value to the economy and pay higher wages. We will investigate establishing a University building on the skills, training and support of rural trades, crafts and countryside management. Our aim to create a more thriving economy that will attract local young people to return here after they graduate. We will look to support business centres that allow small start-up to share office space and facilities attracting better jobs to rural Dorset.
