21st Century Towns

21st Century Towns

Our 21st Century Towns report highlighted digital connectivity as a priority for our region, especially in the wake of the last year.

In February 2021, a £3m investment was approved to provide digital support to the York and North Yorkshire region. This includes public wi-fi in up to sixteen market towns, and ultrafast fibre broadband to six business parks. This investment will allow more people to access economic opportunities, and boosts the productivity of up to 500 businesses, which in turn enhances our region’s economy and reputation as a place to invest in.
