Project Development, Business Planning and Bid Writing

​Buckman Associates Ltd can help you turn your project idea into reality.  We have supported numerous organisations to develop compelling and robust business cases, that meet the needs of funding bodies such as the Regional Growth Fund, LEPs, European Regional Development Funds (ERDF), European Social Fund (ESF), RDPE, Lottery and many others.

Our approach is to work with you to develop your project idea, identifying clear objectives and developing and testing different approaches to delivery.  We will work with you to understand the need for the project in order to develop a strong strategic case, with a clear rationale for intervention.  At the heart of our approach is the development of a  robust, sustainable business plan with realistic costs, benefits and risks identified. This will ensure your project is deliverable and sustainable once funding has been secured.

Depending on the needs of the funder, we can also support you to develop the economic case for the project, using our experience to estimate economic impact and Return on Investment (ROI) or Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA), in line with the Treasury’s Green Book.


A caring and comprehensive approach to your economic development services
