Enterprising Places Network: BEYOND THE CITY

The Enterprising Places Network

Make Your Mark and ONE North East are pleased to invite you to the launch of the Enterprising Places Network in the North East of England.

The Network provides a direct link to the national Enterprise Place Network launched by Make Your Mark in 2008 and to similar networks elsewhere in United Kingdom.

The Enterprising Place Network is a sounding board for policy makers and practitioners and an open forum to share learning and successful practice.  It provides a Place-led perspective to regional and national enterprise strategies.


Beyond the City

This is the first of a number of Workshops to be promoted by the Network in the North East of England in the next six months.

The Region needs a fine-grained picture of the economic contribution of its rural areas – some of which are performing strongly, some of which are performing less strongly and others where deep-seated problems remain.   

Manufacturing is the largest single rural employer in the North East.  Three rural districts display significantly higher rates of part time working: in excess of 25% of those employed in Teesdale, Sedgefield, Berwick-upon-Tweed and Tynedale work part time.  Yet levels of benefit claims in the former coalfield areas are comparable with parts of the inner city, whilst more remote areas in County Durham experienced the highest increase in Job Seekers Allowance claims during 2008.


Two questions addressed by this workshop are:

  • How can policy reflect this complexity and difference?
  • How can we tackle the challenge of the low value economy in remoter rural areas?
