Paul Swinney
Wed 18 November 2015,

We’ve now a wealth of data about UK cities. Using historical data, Paul Swinney (Centre for Cities) looks at over 100 years of change in the urban areas of England and Wales, comparing cities in 1911 to their overall size and industrial make-up today. He identifies three principles that should guide policy that attempts to support city growth over the next century. Tony Champion (Newcastle University), author of the Foresight Future of Cities working paper on population, looks at population trends in cities to 2050, and what this means for how we measure growth in the future; planning, policies and city living; and action at national and local government level.
