B70: Local Economic Assessments and Regional Strategies: The next chapter

23rd September 2009.

This latest CLES Bulletin examines the potential impact of Local Economic Assessment and Regional Strategies on local economic development and regeneration.

The primary aim of this bulletin is to summarise and review the latest statutory guidance that has been published by CLG, on both Local Economic Assessments and Regional Strategies. The paper discusses CLES’ thoughts regarding how local authorities and partners implement the agenda locally and the opportunities that the statutory Local Economic Assessments provide for re-defining future economic development and regeneration strategic processes and decision making.
