    • Raising Awareness
    • More needed to recognise, celebrate and raise awareness across all sectors of activity to illustrate effective local business community engagement
    • Communicating the opportunities of good private-sector led regeneration across local and national government
    • 2. Local Priorities: Acting Collaboratively
    • Businesses report feeling isolated with insufficient opportunities for the voluntary and private sectors to come together locally in a meaningful way
    • Biggest challenge seen as tying together all local aspects and activity that is already happening locally – more collaboration can deliver more benefit to communities than companies acting alone
    • 3. Removing Red Tape & Promoting Incentives

    • Mobilising volunteers
    • Making sure work always pays
    • Competition law
