Gateway Review 2
Steer- ED has been commissioned by the West of England Combined Authority to provide evaluation support for the Gateway Review process of the 30-year, £900 million devolved Investment Fund.
The evaluation includes a mid-term (2023) and final (2025) assessment of how the development and delivery of the Fund has contributed to changes in local economic development capacity and partnership working.
Steer-ED will conduct stakeholder consultations and an online survey of stakeholders involved in economic development in the West of England. The findings from the consultations and the survey will be analysed and triangulated to inform an Evidence Paper, which will be submitted to the West of England Combined Authority and will form part of the Gateway Review submission to Government.
