This report brings together research exploring how Big Local and other community groups deliver projects in their areas. The aim of the research was to understand how Big Local areas move from identifying issues and priorities in their area, to developing projects to address these. It also aimed to highlight any differences in Big Local projects compared with other resident-led community groups developing their idea into a project.
The report contains five case studies of projects being delivered by Big Local areas and six case studies of projects delivered by non-Big Local community groups. The case studies are based on interviews undertaken with Big Local areas and groups between November 2014 and January 2015.
