Northern 'supercity' called for by chairman of City Growth Commission

21 Oct 2014

In the report released yesterday entitled 'Unleashing Metro Growth', Jim O'Neill called for greater devolution of powers for the biggest Northern cities, and that on many issues they should combine resources to become a regional 'supercity'.

The report covers issues of city-coordination of resources, strategy and finance, as well as public services reform, greater flexibility over spending and borrowing, Tier 2 (non-EU) migration, devolution of adult skills budgets, and additional support for universities

It follows last month's pledge from the Chancellor that he will use the upcoming Autumn Statement to outline funding of projects in the North of England, and is a progression of the consequences of the Scottish referendum
