Community Economic Development Ltd (CED) was set up as a sister company to CBS Ltd when it was incorporated in 1987. CED was established to provide a specialist consultancy, information and advisory service in all aspects of enterprise development and employment creation. It carried out research, wrote and published periodicals and books, devised and delivered training courses as well as carrying out consultancy work. CED was registered in Scotland, no. 104651, and only Directors of CBS could become members and directors of CED. In May 1988 CBS published a five year strategy which identified 14 objectives for CBS. Some of these objectives were condensed into six topics which were included in a brief for consultancy study. In December 1988 the SDA agreed to contract CED to investigate and develop the topics on behalf of CBS. CED appointed, Alan Kay, as a full-time research and development worker to work with advisors in working parties for each of the six topics. The study commenced on 12 December 1988 and was completed on 11 December 1989.
