Places Insight Project

Places Insight Project

The Places insight project is the first step towards assessing the aim to help localities across the UK build on their strengths to become more prosperous. It will review the evidence on the extent and causes of spatial disparities in UK productivity, and the implications for the measurement of success of policies aimed at promoting local growth.

The first research paper was published in February 2020 - UK Regional Productivity Differences: An Evidence Review 

The second phase of the project aims to provide a rich understanding of the process behind the development of Local Industrial Strategies and engage with policy-makers in the devolved administrations to better understand local growth policies.

The second research paper was published in July 2020 - Understanding the policy-making processes behind local growth strategies in England

The project steering group comprises Kate Barker, Emma Bridgewater, Christine Gaskell and Rotha Johnston.
