Innovation Exchange: Community involvement in local economic decision makingRegister now
Given current challenges around local government finance, increasing revenue is top of the agenda for all councils right now. Additional investment is needed to fulfil your ambitions and provide high quality places where people want to live.
Many councils are turning to outside investment to boost their local economy and this can feel like an impossible area to engage residents on, but does that have to be the case?
Join us at this session to hear how empowering residents and involving them in decisions around investment and economic strategy reaps huge benefits not only for your council but every stakeholder in a local area.
Alongside peers from across the country you will explore how to make this happen. You will be inspired by the experiences of colleagues and their knowledge of the vital skills and partnership buy-in needed to sustain resident engagement in local economic decision making.
Join us for our second in a two-part series of sessions looking at the local economy, and leave with key practical steps to:
- Engage residents in local economic decision making
- Identify skills and data gaps
- Develop investment partnerships that have resident involvement at the heart of them
