You mention data, and that’s really useful.
Much of the economic data that exists for our area seems to be held in the county council and we finally have a meeting organised for next week to see the head of Economic Development (the borough council are on our team, but the county have not been to date).
Are there any options for DCLG to engage in that conversation with councils to explain the importance of these pilots & the reasons why they should be supported?
We have raised with DCLG previously where we think they can help out on engagement more generally with local authorities – but its unlikely they’ll be able to join the session. It sounds like a really positive start that you are meeting with them so I would suggest seeing how that goes (useful to remind them about the programme being DCLG funded) and then get in touch with us directly if you think you need more help moving things along (firstname.lastname@example.org)
