Using City Deals to drive Low Carbon Growth

Policy product type: LGiU essential policy briefing

Published date: January 22, 2013

Author: Steven Bland, LGiU associate

Issues covered:

  • city deals
  • climate change
  • Devolution
  • economy
  • Low carbon growth

This briefing covers a recent report by the Green Alliance think tank which analyses the low-carbon credentials of the wave one city deals, and prospects for wave two deals to deliver low carbon economic growth. Almost all of the city deals include mention of low carbon activities. However the degree of low-carbon integration across the city deals and the links with existing city climate change strategies is much more mixed.

The briefing will be of interest to those working in economic development, planning, regeneration and energy in all 28 of the wave one and wave two cities. It will also be of interest to other towns, districts and regions that may benefit from an expanded city deal process in the near future.
