Buxton Economic Resilience Study

The Economic Resilience Study was a follow on from the Alternative Economics Seminar in November 2013, and took most of 2014 to research and produce. It is an in-depth analysis of our local economy, based on a combination of publicly available statistical information, private data and surveys of residents, visitors and local businesses. It identifies a range of actions that will enable us to build a more resilient community that respects the environment, on which we all depend.

The report was launched on Wednesday 14th January 2014, in the Old Hall Hotel.
Thirty three individuals, representing a range of organisations, heard a short presentation on the report, three case studies where individuals had already taken positive steps. People then broke into four discussion groups tackling Local Supply, Energy Retrofits, Renewable Energy and Wellbeing and developed ideas for actions that we could take as a community.
