Deyton Bell have published several discussion documents on what measures should be put in place to help address the economic and commercial impact of C19, and they thought that IED members might like to know about this.

Deyton Bell believe that Local Authorities and LEPs now need to review LIS, Growth Hub and other economic development strategies/activities to meet the new economic landscape, address the needs of the people/businesses requiring most support and importantly, arrange appropriate services. Action to design, plan and deliver the required support is needed now. If members would like to know more, our papers are available at
