Briefing: Unleashing Metro Growth: the City Growth Commission and devolution to cities

In the wake of the Scottish referendum, the City Growth Commission has set out a range of recommendations to empower city-regions or ‘metros’ and provides a significant rallying point for advocates of decentralisation in the run-up to the General Election in 2015, with a slew of relevant announcements following. This briefing summarises the Commission’s final report and reflects on the next steps for its recommendations, including the latest announcements on decentralisation to cities from across the political spectrum.
