Surrey Hills Enterprises

Surrey Hills Enterprises is the Community Interest Company arm of the Surrey Hills National Landscapes. It was set up in 2012 to support and develop the rural economy and tourism and to promote and enhance the Surrey Hills.

Surrey Hills Enterprises core activities are focused on ‘clean growth’, environmental sustainability and building a strong local economy and tourism industry.  It has a strong membership of local businesses who receive business support including training, mentoring, collaboration and a Surrey Hills marketing platform.

There is now greater focus on developing the rural economy in a sustainable way that protects and enhances the environment. At the same time, buying local and linking to environmental impact is becoming increasingly popular and a key factor in customer choices. Many local producers also offer exciting experiences such as tastings, workshops and demonstrations.

Surrey Hills Enterprises aims to substantially increase the support it gives by building a thriving rural business community and developing Surrey Hills into one of the top nationally recognised countryside destinations and brands in the UK.

Its aims are:

  • Business Community – grow the rural economy focusing on ‘Clean Growth’ and support and develop local producers and suppliers;
  • Local Produce – develop a market for local produce that reflects the special nature and quality of the locality;
  • Local Communities & wider public – Raise awareness of local produce, local businesses and the Surrey Hills to the wider public; and
  • Visitor & Tourism Economy – promote Surrey Hills as a visitor destination based on the quality of the environment and its local produce, artisans and services.
