Creating Purposeful Places

All Local Authorities want to make a difference to their place, to create prosperity and local pride. However, austerity and the consequent lack of resources is challenging this place leadership role. Alongside this the challenges of Brexit, the changing nature of town centres and the need to attract people and organisations to invest, live, work and play in your place has never been greater. The answer is to become an enabler and facilitator within the place, ‘to drive from the back seat’ but how do you empower, enthuse and engage stakeholders in the journey to create a ‘Purposeful Place’?
