Devolution and the Future of Cities
There’s little doubt that there’s a new mood about devolving powers to cities and regions. Where will this go next? Mike Emmerich (Metrodynamics), who worked on the Northern Powerhouse initiative and is now advising Birmingham; George Ferguson, Mayor of Bristol; Alexandra Jones (Chief Executive, Centre for Cities), who has played a leading role in the campaign for cities and devolution for many years; and Mark Tewdwr-Jones (Professor of Town Planning, Newcastle University), who led the Newcastle City Futures 2065 report, discuss the issues.
