Devon & Somerset Flood Results Final Report

Between April 2012 and March 2013, Devon and Somerset faced some of the wettest weather experienced for years. The months of April and June 2012 were individually the wettest since records began in 1910, with the period from April through June also seeing unprecedented accumulations of rainfall for the UK. Further heavy rain in November led to more disruption with flooding events causing significant disruption to homes, businesses, and transport. This report was commissioned to investigate the extent of the costs to businesses.

Strategy for Growth May 2013

Devon County Council’s (DCC) Strategic Plan sets out how the county can ensure that Devon is strong, healthy and prosperous, and is the place we all want it to be. It highlights the role that enterprise can play in helping us achieve that goal and our vision of improving quality of life for all who live, work and visit the county.

Our challenge is to promote strong and sustainable growth in Devon – a task made harder given the current challenges faced by the UK and world economy. But it is essential that we deliver, and the County Council has a strong role to play as an employer, a purchaser of goods and services, and through the implementation of strategies to guide the future development of Devon.
 
 

Sectors Research - Final Report to Devon County Council - February 2013

SERIO, based at Plymouth University, in collaboration with the RED Group at Plymouth Business School and ECORYS were commissioned in September 2012 to undertake a Sectors Research Project. This report presents the final findings of the research team’s work. The objective of the overall research project is to identify sectors that have growth potential and, in so doing, provide invaluable evidence to support decision making in relation to the targeting of economic development support from the Local Authorities and sub-regional and local partners.

 

Regionalisation of Public Sector Pay - November 2012

In the 2011 Autumn Statement, the Chancellor of the Exchequer stated that public sector pay
should be made more responsive to local labour markets. His basic rationale was that

differences between public and private sector pay can adversely affect private sector businesses which have to compete with higher public sector wages. It also leads to unfair variations in public sector service quality and limits the number of jobs that the public sector can support

Devon Local Economic Assessment - May 2012

This document presents – in summary form – the Devon Local Economic Assessment. It is
based on data and other evidence which describe Devon’s economic circumstances. The
Local Economic Assessment is not itself a strategy – although its findings ought to be taken
into account in the development of future strategy.

Section 69 of the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act (2009) set
out the requirement for principal local authorities in England to “prepare an assessment of
the economic conditions of its area”. The new duty came into force from 1st April 2010.
