Gloucestershire in 2050: The Present and Future Role of Anchor Institutions

Published on 03/07/2018

HCG organised a meeting on 28June as part of its contribution to the ‘big conversation’ on the strategy for Gloucestershire, focusing on anchor institutions, defined as ‘institutions that, alongside their main function, play a significant and recognised role in a locality by making a strategic contribution to the local economy and community’.

Peter Bungard, CEO of Gloucestershire County Council, presented the background to the ‘2050’ debate and the role of anchors, who were in turn represented by a panel from the University of Gloucestershire, the NHS, GCHQ, The Cheltenham Festivals, Renishaw and Avon Mutual Bank. Each spoke briefly of their contribution, and also their constraints, and a valuable discussion followed with wide audience input. It is clear that anchor institutions play a significant role in the economic, cultural and social fabric of the County; appreciation of this, and the needs of such organisations, needs to play a clear part in the discussion about the future of Gloucestershire.

The Warden, in introducing the meeting, reminded us that HCG should continue to be a keen participant in such a debate to live up to its strap line, ‘For Gloucestershire’.
