The role of county councils in economic development

    In the light of the focus of much of the debate about economic growth on cities we were commissioned to produce a report.

    This report addresses:

    • The economic contribution of county areas;
    • The role of county councils and driving economic growth; and
    • How current policy could better exploit the potential of counties.

    The report, which is available on the County Council Network website, summarises the economic importance of those parts of the country covered by county councils. It goes on to explore the current and potential contribution of county councils to driving economic growth and ways in which that contribution can be exploited to the full in the light of the Government’s response to the Heseltine report, No Stone Unturned.

    The UK economy needs all places to fulfil their potential in order to be competitive in the global race.

    Our team comprised Phil Swann, Helen Payne, Kevin Fenning and Christopher Rocks.
