This paper argues that regional strategies focused on resurgent cities offer an effective strategy for achieving regional growth objectives. The benefits of this growth will, however, be unevenly distributed across both people and places. We discuss the available evidence on both of these issues and consider the tensions that this trade-off will present in the context of changes proposed as part of the Sub-National Review.
