By B Edwards, M Goodwin, S Pemberton and M Woods.This report presents the findings of a two-year research project which analysed rural partnerships operating in mid-Wales and Shropshire. It describes and analyses partnership management and development within rural regeneration. It offers guidance, a local viewpoint and experience, and checklists that highlight appropriate issues alongside local case studies. These issues relate to both the practice of participants in partnership working, and wider policies. The guidance is supported by six case studies which describe issues of good practice, selection of partners, community representation, committee structures, and key factors associated with working in partnership.
