Client: The Cross-Border Partnership

The three Council’s appointed AMION to prepare an economic review of the Cross-Border Partnership area. In addition, AMION was also commissioned to undertake a detailed assessment of completed and future major projects.  The main components of the study included:

identifying and exploring the economic performance, linkages, similarities and differences between the three areas.  This analysis was sub-divided into three components:

  • ‘Business’ – economic structure and business activity
  • ‘People’ – demographic and socio-economic characteristics
  • ‘Place’ – property, infrastructure and environmental characteristics

As well as historic and current data, economic forecasts from Cambridge Econometrics were analysed to assess future prospects.  A summary assessment of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats was undertaken and the implications for joint working considered;

  • assessment of the economic impact of interventions in Hinckley and Bosworth and North Warwickshire. This involved individual analyses of the economic impact of in total 28 projects;
  • analysis of the implications for the future by considering areas where there was potential for closer joint working and to set out a framework for these; and
  • identification of a ‘dashboard’ for monitoring future performance of the areas.
