The Council of the Isles of Scilly is delighted to announce the inclusion of the Smart Islands programme within the government’s Industrial Strategy, which was published on 27 November 2017.

The Industrial Strategy sets out the Government’s plans to build for the future and how they will help businesses create better, higher-paying jobs with investment in the skills, industries and infrastructure of the future.

The Smart Islands programme has been given special recognition for its focus on providing savings for residents and businesses and for demonstrating that innovation can be driven from even the smallest communities and is not confined to the UK’s cities. Scilly’s programme is one of just a handful to be featured as exemplar case studies within the strategy.
