    Answer:

    Opportunities for economic development, training and employment, including tourism, are being considered for each town as a part of the development of Local Implementation Plans for each of the Growth Towns.

    The Local Implementation Plans can be made available as they are endorsed by local reference groups and the partners involved, including local shires.
