Local investment planning

The coordination of place investments requires an effective framework for strategic choices.

Alignment of economic, housing, infrastructure and local service delivery spending streams is critical to unlocking local growth.

GENECON can work with local stakeholders to define the criteria for choice, investment priorities and the anticipated local outputs and outcomes.

We have:

  • refreshed the Growth Plans for Redcar & Cleveland Borough and advised on Local Growrth priorities;
  • led the process of investment prioritisation for Coast to Capital LEP;
  • prepared local investment plans for sub-regions and towns, such as in Leeds City Region, East Kent and the Black Country, and the East Midlands towns of Sleaford, Grantham and Gainsborough;
  • assessed the investment plans for the Tees Valley under Devolution proposals;
  • reviewed the HCA's investment framework for Yorkshire & the Humber;
  • defined investment priorities for former coalfield communities in Durham and across the North West;
  • developed a local investment plan for Stockton's central area and riverside;
  • devised a framework for investment prioritisation in the Kent sector of the Thames Gateway.
