We carry out Local Economic Spend Analysis to identify the wider economic benefits brought to an area as a result of a proposed development. For residential schemes this assesses the benefit of a new population’s local expenditure. In the case of mixed-use and commercial developments we consider the supply chain linkages that can improve the local multiplier effect of any expenditure, (i.e. how many times a pound can go round the local economy). Accurate assessment of these benefits can form the basis for wider regenerative arguments in favour of a scheme.
