Policy Review

Our approach to policy review is to look at the needs of the South West and how they are being met.  The policy review process offers opportunities:

  • to gather and represent the views of the South West on topics which have a strategic significance to the whole region
  • to enhance partnership working within the South West and increase consistency across regional and local strategies and plans
  • to raise awareness of important issues affecting the region with central government, the press, the public and stakeholders

Each review is informed by an extensive phase of evidence gathering which includes desk research, discussion with key stakeholders, and a regional workshop.
