Landowners, site promoters, property developers, planners and local authorities need to be able to characterise how development can sustain and enhance local, regional, and national economies, whilst also generating benefits to local communities, residents, and businesses.
Delivering economic growth is a key priority for local authorities and is a core objective of national planning policy across the UK. Having a strong socio-economic justification for a project or development can be very helpful in demonstrating the beneficial impacts a development can bring about. This can also act as a counterweight to other potential adverse impacts.
