Big Society or Big Con?!

August 1, 2010

Can Do Communities watches with interest on just how the new coallitions plans for a community led new society shapes up in the near future. We are also more than interested in the scrapping of the Regional Development Agencies (EEDA was our regional version in the East of England) put in place by Labour to promote economic growth in the regions.

The coallition reckon that these un accountable bodies are not the way forward, so what is their masterplan?, you could argue they are still trying to find one!, they have written to all Business Leaders & Council Leaders to invite suggestions on how the new ‘Local Enterprise Partnerships’ might look like.

Forgive us for asking the obvious question but………… where is the Third Sector involvement in the request for responses?…….. answers on a postcard please!


We'd love to hear from call, fax, email or pop in and visit us.
