Post-pandemic economic growth: Levelling up - local and regional structures and the delivery of economic growth

Inquiry

This sub-inquiry - Levelling up: local and regional structures and the delivery of economic growth - forms part of the Committee’s overall ‘super-inquiry’ into Post-Pandemic Economic Growth.

Our ‘levelling up’ inquiry will look at how local and regional government structures (including the role of powerhouses, local enterprise partnerships and growth hubs, city and regional mayoralties, and councils) could be reformed or better equipped to deliver growth locally.

We want to hear your views on these issues. Read the call for evidence and submit.
