This paper sets out the key project findings, notably from a set of roundtable workshops in Manchester, Cornwall, Cardiff and London. These ‘Productivity+’ roundtables provided an opportunity to consider the qualitative analysis of, and creative solutions to, place-based growth, moving beyond solely economic concepts to encompass well-being, culture and the environment. Places matter to people. They shape the way we live our lives, feel about ourselves and the relationships we have with others. Moreover places – not least because of their history, character and physical form – contribute significantly to personal and societal wellbeing.
