How to Write a CED Plan

My Community,

Year: 2018

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.
