Traditional rural buildings as instruments of rural development

  1. 1. Traditional Rural Buildings asInstruments of Rural Development Chris Bell Countryside and Community Research Institute ESRC CASE Studentship in collaboration with the National Trust
  2. 2. Outline• Research context• Methodology• Findings (including use)
  3. 3. Research ContextHeritage values:• Intrinsic value e.g. historical significance• Instrumental value – how heritage assets can be used to achieve a goal e.g. aid rural development“The historic environment is an important asset in theeconomic development and regeneration of rural areasand has the potential to make an even greatercontribution in the future.” HELM
  4. 4. Traditional Rural BuildingsTraditional farm/working buildings• Ubiquitous in British countryside• Functionally redundant• Sense of place and local distinctiveness• Planning policy
  5. 5. Research ContextSustainable rural economic development• What is this? - maintaining income generation and job creation• How to foster this? - Exogenous processes (external)? Endogenous processes (internal)? Both? - Local economic growth i.e. theories of export base, net income, growth poles, and immobile resources.
  6. 6. Research Context- ‘The Leaky Bucket’ – fill it faster or plug theholes “Pouring money into an area has minimum long-term impact if the wealth flows straight out again because there is nothing to hold it in the area” NEF (New Economics Foundation)Source: NEF
  7. 7. Research ContextKey research question- How well does the initial investment from the adaptive re-use of traditional rural buildings generate benefits for the local economy, in other words how well is it linked to local businesses and local people? Initial•Conversion works investment into Re-spent locally?•New use local economy Need local economic linkages
  8. 8. Methodology6 stage process:1. Literature review and conceptualisation2. Methodological design3. Primary data collection4. Data analysis, LM3 model development and computation of multipliers5. Stakeholder consultation (National Trust)6. Toolkit development (use of findings)
  9. 9. MethodologyMeasuring local economic linkages:• Adapted LM3 model incorporating elements of a simple Keynesian Multiplier analysis - focuses on first 3 rounds of expenditure - LM3 score (the multiplier) falls between 1 and 3
  10. 10. LM3 Example1.£1 enters local economy2. 80% spent in local businesses = 80p left in local economy.3. 60% of that 80p then spent in local businesses = 48p left in local economy (£1 + £0.80 + £0.48) / £1 = 2.28

LM3Round Activity Effect1 Grant income plus contribution Direct from National Trust or tenant2 Expenditure on contractors and Indirect materials3 Expenditure made by contractors Indirect and suppliers3 Household expenditure Induced Conversion worksRound Activity Effect1 Attributable turnover from Direct building use2 Expenditure on goods, services and Indirect labour3 Expenditure by suppliers Indirect3 Household expenditure Induced Building use
