What we have learnt, though, is that for community economic development to be effective some fundamental changes are required. In particular, community-led economic plans need to have a legitimate and recognised place in the way that local authorities and other decision-making bodies approach economic development so that the community’s vision can form a key part of the strategy for the local economy.”
