Your Community Economic Development (CED) plan is intended to help residents, local business and public sector organisations map out how to achieve real economic change in their area – whether this is in food, housing, finance, energy or any other local economic opportunities. The plan can help:
- To involve a range of people, groups and organisations in discussions of how to improve their local economy
- To attract funding
- To think in a structured way about how you tackle problems and achieve real economic change
- To show the difference you have already made.
