New Forest District Council

A Business South Champion

Appletree Court, Beaulieu Road, Lyndhurst, SO43 7PA

The New Forest is home to a population of roughly 180,000, more than 9,000 businesses and covers an area of over 750km²

The district is a place known more for its picturesque landscapes rather than its economic opportunities, but the vision of the council is that the district will become seen as a place where thriving business and serene surroundings come hand in hand. The Council’s Corporate Plan places helping local business grow as a key priority and the upcoming Economic Development Strategy for 2018 will set out the future direction and objectives of the New Forest economy.
