Observatory collaborates with CSWP to develop new sub-regional strategy

cswp-logoThe Observatory is pleased to continue our long standing links with the Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Partnership (CSWP) through a forthcoming project aimed at exploring future economic prospects for the sub-region.

We were commissioned in 2007 to deliver an initial economic assessment for CSWP. This report provided CSWP with a review of the strengths and weaknesses in the wider socio-economic environment for the sub-region as well as outlining future opportunities and threats.

Subsequently we have been approached to build on this analysis through the development of economic scenarios using our integrated policy model, an advanced decision support model currently being developed with the support of Advantage West Midlands.

The model incorporates sophisticated mathematics to enable the user to examine economic, demographic, and environmental themes within a single spatial model.

The model will be used in conjunction with CSWP and their appointed contractors to develop a range of scenarios that will go to inform discussions around the emerging strategy.

CSWP have released an invitation to tender for delivery of the new strategy.
