About Us

Our vision

We are the economic development arm of East Cambridgeshire District Council and here to promote economic growth across the district by working with the business community.

The Enterprise EC Team works closely with the Council’s planning section and other ECDC departments to ensure that we offer a co-ordinated and pragmatic approach to business growth and investment projects.


The Enterprise EC team have an extensive range of contacts, local knowledge and resources which include two highly successful business centres. We are tasked to deliver sustainable economic development in line with the local authority's strategic direction and governance.

We always work on a 'can do' and 'will do' basis so it will be our pleasure to provide support in what ever capacity we can. No issue too small or project too large and our portfolio of expertise and contacts covers many economic areas across the region.

The Council has a pro-business and growth agenda and operates a business friendly approach to regulatory services.

We are keen to provide a welcoming and supportive environment to discuss proposals with local businesses and investors on projects that require planning consent.

Whether you are thinking about building new commercial premises, looking to extend on an existing site or simply want some initial advice on whether a project might be feasible then please do contact us and we would be happy to facilitate an initial exploratory discussion.
