Local Action canvassing views


Residents and businesses in Cornwall have been attending drop in sessions across the Duchy to have their say on how future EU investment could be delivered in their area.

Local Action is a “bottom up community approach” to economic development, and forms a key part of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership’s investment strategy, with up to £25 million having been earmarked for this specific activity from 2014-2020.

To identify local priorities, a series of drop in sessions for residents and businesses are being held to inform the Local Development Strategy that sits at the heart of the Local Action approach.

Kim Spencer, vice chair of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Community Led Local Development and LEADER Working Group, said: “We were very pleased that the drop ins have proved so popular. We thank everyone for taking their time to come along and have their say on the economic issues that matter to them. The more comments given, the stronger the strategy will be.”
