Economic Impact Assessment


SERIO has a strong track record of assessing the potential impacts of new policies, developments and business decisions on the economy, communities and the environment. Our team of experts can give a complete picture of the direct, indirect and induced impact on the economy, as well as wealth creation, employment and any strategic added value a project produces.

Understanding the actual or potential benefits and adverse impacts of new investments is essential for policy and decision makers. Using qualitative and quantitative techniques, and frequently public consultations, SERIO’s approach enables our clients to consider the economic implications, as well as looking at the impact on communities and the environment.

What makes us different?
Economic impact assessment can be a complicated exercise, so the SERIO team are focused on producing a clear, well presented, rational report which lays out our methods and assumptions clearly. We are also recognised for engaging successfully with stakeholder groups and communities.

SERIO Research Helps the Blue Mile ExpandSERIO was commissioned to conduct a socio-economic assessment of the inaugural Blue Mile event in Plymouth in July 2010. Following on from the success of the event and the research findings, it has just been announced that it will become a national event.
