A highly skilled area with affluent market towns. Food and drink manufacturing, biopharma and quarrying are key drivers in the area. Many creative industries also cluster here, providing opportunities for office and creative workspaces.

It has a rich industrial and engineering heritage, and a growing reputation for logistics and distribution. There are a number of sites available for industrial, office, housing and leisure development, as well as the flagship Markham Vale and the impressive town centre regeneration schemes.
