Place Taskforce


Business in the Community’s (BITC) Place Taskforce sets out to capture and showcase “what works” in transforming the prospects of a place, creating a blueprint for business engagement in place-based transformation. The taskforce will gather information and seek submissions from a range of cross- sector organisations, culminating in a report which showcases replicable approaches and drives increased business engagement in place-based transformation.


  • Innovative, scalable solutions and best practice for business engagement in place transformation captured.
  • A report which provides a blueprint on how to successfully engage business in place transformation.
  • Developing a plan for scaling up to twelve priority places, at least one in every region and nation, informing the blueprint through a test and learn approach and driving action on the ground.

The Place Taskforce is chaired by Lord Steve Bassam.
