CEDOS is the voice of senior Economic Development professionals from across the public sector. We carry out research, provide information, identify and disseminate best practice and publish reports on key issues for economic development policy and practice. Through our collective expertise and actions, CEDOS plays its full part in influencing, informing and helping shape national policy and initiatives.

Economic Development and regeneration is a key priority both nationally and locally. As our research and evidence to Parliamentary Committees and Groups demonstrate, the role of local authority economic development is critical to national economic recovery, local growth and the success of Local Enterprise Partnerships.

With the development of devolution deals as well as local growth deals, proposals for 100% local retention of business rates, the need for new sources of funding to counter budget cuts, and the need to ensure that all areas of the country are able to secure sustainable long-term economic growth, there has never been a more important time to be a member of CEDOS.

CEDOS meets quarterly in London to discuss key economic development issues and share knowledge and experience. Meetings provide the opportunity to hear from and discuss issues of the moment with officers from key Government Departments and other national organisations as well as having round table discussions to hear what is going around the country.

Local Authority Economic Development Funding, Governance & Delivery

This is the latest report of the current CEDOS action-research programme on taking forward local authority economic development in times of change. With examples and case studies from across the country, it focuses on the key issues of funding, governance and delivery. It is informed by the latest evidence including importantly the findings from our latest CEDOS member survey, which also provided members with the opportunity to put forward their views on the overall impact of changes in governance, funding and restructuring and on the way forward for local authority economic development in terms of its scope, funding and delivery.
