HJA participating in IED event on LA/LEP responses to Brexit in the South West
HJA is continuing its role understanding and advising on the impact of Brexit on local economic development. We are participating in the IED hosted workshop in the South West for IED Members and Local Authority and LEP Economic Development staff to discuss current and future responses to the impact of Brexit on local economic development. The event on the 3rd November 2016 will includes the results of a survey completed by HJA of Local Authorities and LEPs, We will then publish the results here after the event. There will also be a presentation of recent research in which HJA was involved on how LEPs and Local Authorities should work together, as well as a final session on how to support underperforming towns and cities. However, the bulk of the session will be an opportunity for participants to share their experiences and learn from each other.
Speakers include: Professor Chris Balch (University of Plymouth), Keith Burge (ERS and former Chair IED), Dr Gareth Jones (Hardisty Jones Associates).
