Exeter City Council wanted to generate a strong response to the governments industrial strategy that could influence wider development of regional strategy and ensure that the placemaking desires of the city were clearly stated.
There was a clear desire to bring together key stakeholders in the city to form a coherent one-city response rather than all individually putting ideas into regional strategy and losing opportunity to make more impact.
Global City Futures provided consultant support to lead the development of Exeter’s Local Industrial Strategy and edit a final document that could be jointly owned by key stakeholders.
From initial workshops to capture shared vision, to the identification of key investment strategic requirements, we managed the entire process.
Global City Futures aligned the views of stakeholders to develop a clear and consistent narrative for Exeter that makes a compelling case for how the city is set to deliver the government’s industrial strategy at a local level.Contact Us
