We’re going to keep our pounds in Plymouth where possible and maximise the wider benefits of our spending to the city’s economy, society and environment.


increase in Council spending with local suppliers over the next two years

A new Plymouth Supplier Directory

Maximising social value to benefit the city’s economy, society and environment

What are we going to do? 

  • We're going to spend more locally where possible and use our spending power to support and grow the local economy by committing to increase our spending with local suppliers by 10% over the next two years.              

  • We're going to maximise social value when making decisions on how we spend our money, to benefit society and environment as well as our local Plymouth economy.                                             

  • We're going to join forces with other major Plymouth organisations to create a collective approach to local procurement. 

  • We'll launch an open-source online platform where local suppliers can advertise their capacity and capabilities, creating a local purchasing directory that city companies can use.
