Development and Strategy

We assist local partners with developing strategies and tools to enhance the performance of local economies to benefit the people and businesses living and working there.

Our approach to economic strategy development starts with a thorough understanding of how the local economy functions and what is its asset base. We then look at local partners ambitions and vision for their local economy and develop a series of realistic steps to move them towards their ambition.

We work across the range of economic development tools, sometimes collaborating with specialist partners.  Areas of expertise include:

  • Sector studies
  • Infrastructure investment
  • Placemaking and inward investment
  • Property market analysis
  • Business support
  • Skills and training
  • Funding
  • Delivery
