NLP - West Stratford Economic Manifesto Report 2012

During 2012, economics and regeneration consultancy, Nathaniel Litchfield & Partners, was instructed to produce a clear and independent report summarising the economic impacts of the West of Stratford proposals.

A copy of the full report can be viewed and downloaded here.

The report provides an indication of the number of jobs and the level of investment and expenditure that will be associated with the development and also identifies the broad benefits that this will offer to Stratford-on-Avon District. In summary, the West of Stratford development will provide a wide package of employment and economic benefits for the local area and beyond.
