Western Somerset Economic Development and Access Strategy

Background

EDAW and Faber Maunsell were commissioned to develop an Economic and Access Strategy for Western Somerset in June 2002, by a client team consisting of the South West Regional Development Agency, Somerset County Council, West Somerset Council and the Exmoor National Park Authority.

Key objectives for the project included the use of the strategy to:

  • Inform the operational planning of Objective 2, new SWRDA programmes and existing initiatives such as Communities First in Rural Somerset; and
  • Input into the review of development plans, Local Transport Plans and funding documents.
