Our local economic future

17th June 2024.

Economic change may be dreamt of by aspiring national leaders, but it is delivered at the local level.

Ahead of the General Election, CLES is calling for political parties to rediscover the power of local and take six bold actions to harness the power of local to deliver change:

  1. Reverse austerity, power local economies
  2. Reframe devolution
  3. Make wealth building everyone’s business
  4. Empower places to lead climate action
  5. Power up local employment pathways
  6. Reignite local planning
