Local Economic Renewal

This is where we house articles/documents/papers etc that we believe are of use to our members. They do not necessarily represent the IED’s views or members views, but are considered useful insight for our profession as we all work to rebuild economies in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

A paper has been written by David Marlow entitled Economic Renewal in the shadow of a pandemic – A personal perspective (download from the link below).

This thought piece suggests how it seems at least plausible that ‘new normals’ post-pandemic will be fundamentally and enduringly different to prior orthodoxies. This paper suggests how this might be, and the implications for those passionate about positive progressive place making. It is set within the framework of ‘Positive progressive placemaking’ (PPP) which was drafted by the same author, at the beginning of 2020, but finally posted on May 1st during the initial UK COVID19 lockdown.
