Near completion of my thesis looking into LDV closure of 2009. The research looks into plant closure within a small location and the employment paths of the redundant workers. More specifically how higher skilled workers can also be severely affected in job searching in the labour market. Due to the nature and context of the closure the research also encroached upon the effectiveness of government taskforces and local agencies in reacting to closure, additionally the role of regional and economic development driving effective policy.
