Details

The place-making research was undertaken by Trends Business Research and NEF Consulting Ltd, and commissioned through the CASE joint strategic research programme led by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and its sector leading arms-length bodies — Arts Council England, Historic England and Sport England.

It follows an earlier report - Local economic impacts from cultural sector investments - which is based on a literature review of economic impact assessments of arts, heritage, museums and galleries, cultural events. It was commissioned by the DCMS and undertaken by consultants ECORYS. The review investigated specific culture, sport and heritage assets and investments in specific localities, and focusing on their economic rather than their wider ‘attractiveness’ impacts.
