This collection of essays explores the government’s shift away from regionalism to local economic development. The chapters examine issues around governance structures, planning, housing and competition between places as well as specific looks at Wales, Scotland and London. The consensus amongst the expert authors is that without proper resources the new system of Local Economic Partnerships (LEPs) will lack the scale and scope to foster the economic growth needed in the regions and need greater clarity of purpose.
