Emerging models for leadership and governance of local economic development – June 2014

This briefing provides local authorities (LAs) and partners with an overview of issues and proposals being advocated for 2015-20 devolution agendas in England. It considers, in particular, often fraught issues around LA relationships with any ‘intermediate tier’ of governance – i.e. institutions between individual LAs and national government.

It will be relevant to councillors and officers across all areas and all tiers of local government, particularly those involved with economic development, Combined Authorities (or considering them), fiscal and public service reform.
