Abstract

Only 1 of the 8 largest places outside London has an income above the national average, something the government’s new urban growth strategy aims to address. Tim Leunig argues that while the new strategy of transferring more powers from Westminster to cities is sound in principle, more still needs to be done at local level to ensure that cities deliver the best possible education for students, to build more highly skilled, resilient communities.
