Community Regeneration Partnership Expertise in Urban Renewal
  • Feb

    Government Office for the North West

    In 2006, CRP was commissioned to advise a number of Local Authorities on their bids under the Local Enterprise Growth Initiative (LEGI).  With the benefit of CRP’s expertise in local enterprise and the role of business in regeneration, Donald McIntosh was able to provide advice that allowed the Local Authorities to review their partnership working, look at wider economic development issues and develop more engaging enterprise strategies.

    Donald received praise for this work. These were some of the comments:
    • “Donald McIntosh proved to be a useful ‘critical friend’, challenging the thinking of the bid team and highlighting the weaknesses… that needed to be addressed.”  He “challenged and offered constructive criticism… and also provided a wider economic development perspective which was very helpful… His independent ‘outsider’s’ view was valuable in identifying issues that the bid should clarify…”
    • “The assignment has helped to add value to our partnerships and in particular emphasised to our private sector the significant role they play in enterprise development in Bolton.”
    • “Overall we found the process very positive and helpful.”
