Doubling down on devolution: where next for the UK’s local and regional economies? 

The West Midlands and Greater Manchester are leading the way on devolution with more control over transport, planning, housing, policing and skills. The combined authorities were both singled out in the Levelling Up White Paper for trailblazer devolution deals with Government, with negotiations beginning imminently. 

The elected Mayors in these regions act as a single point of accountability – both to local people and central government. Should Mayoral combined authorities be given even more autonomy in order to bring back prosperity and pride to the places they govern? Are they on the right track to become examples for other areas of the UK to follow? And how are they approaching their negotiations with Government?

Please note, this event will be taking place both in-person at RSA House and streaming online. Please make sure to select the relevant ticket type when booking - thank you
