Coventry and Warwickshire Growth Deal 2015/2016 Evaluation
Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership/ Coventry City Council
Acting as a sub-consultant to policy consultancy Carney Green, Nick Henry provided expert peer review on evaluation methodology and local economic development context.
The aim of the evaluation was a) to assess the process of initial development and set-up of the Growth Deal Programme and its assurance infrastructure and b) report on initial project progress and impact
The project contributed to the range of activities undertaken by the Centre for Business in Society in supporting local and regional development within Coventry, its sub-region and the West Midlands more widely. This includes strong engagement with economic development and governance bodies such as Coventry City Council and Coventry and Warwickshire LEP.
