Following the duty set out in the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act in 2009, the Council has undertaken an economic assessment of the County (including the Greater Cambridge economic area) in partnership with district councils.
The primary purpose of the local economic assessment is to inform county and districts councils' sustainable community strategies, and the economic interventions of local partners along with the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership.
Local Economic Assessments (LEAs) will also form part of the evidence base for the preparation of a range of local strategies such as local transport plans, local development frameworks, skills and economic development strategies.
Consultation took place to shape the final version of the assessment and this was endorsed by the Council's Cabinet in February 2011. The second annual refreshment took place in 2013 and the documents are available on the Cambridgeshire Insight website.
