Weybridge’s status as the second largest town within the Elmbridge borough, coupled with its large population and several major roads running through the town, means that the area often suffers from heavy traffic congestion. Fortunately, the Elmbridge county council will be focusing on improving the transport infrastructure, as part of its latest core strategy.
Some additional areas that the council have also outlined in their report include:
If you are considering whether to relocate or not to Weybridge for business, then here are some statistics that may just help you to make up your mind:
With a population of approximately 132,670, of which 22.5% fall in the (age 0-15) bracket, it is hardly surprising that there is a shortage of places at local educational establishments and with much of the community aspiring to achieve some form of higher education qualification, the local council has realised that these issues can only be addressed via investment and by working with local authorities to help generate new opportunities for the younger generation.
It should be noted that the local population hasn’t been deterred though and 59.2% have still managed to achieve some form of higher qualification.
Moreover, with 75.3% of the residents throughout the borough being economically active, average earnings for much of the population continue to be significantly higher than their national counterparts.
What does this mean for you as a business?
