Following actions completed:
 Nationally it is accepted that VAT registrations are the best method of
    measuring business start up activity, despite the fact that the figures do not
    take into account businesses with a turnover less than £64k. In order to get
    over this problem we are using 2 supplementary datasets one measuring
    contractual start up figures (reported on the 15th Feb) and BETA model data
    which relies on a number of sources such as yellow pages advertisements
    and installation of business phone lines.
 The Business Team will be working closely with Employability to take the
    Salford Construction Partnership model of encouraging local businesses to
    employ local labour to other sectors.
 Stephen Kearney - Community Safety Unit has taken this up.
 The Business Team will contact Professor Fairhurst.
 National data will be supplemented through the use of BETA model data to
    analyse economic activity at ward level - we are advised that data drilling
    down to super output area is not robust enough to draw any concrete
    conclusions and hence should only be used to supplement nationally
    recognised data.

    overseen by a steering group including SCC officers. Study reports in July
