Event description
Planning, Localism and Institutional Change in the UK since 2010: Examining a Decade of Reform

About this Event

Dr Alex Nurse, University of Liverpool

Cities around the world are facing unprecedented challenges as we move towards the middle of the 21st Century. The pressures of climate change, migration, an ageing society, resource shortage, etc. are urban issues, and demand new approaches to how cities are governed. The UK, specifically England, is at the cutting edge of experimentation with regard to new models of governance, featuring as it has for 30 years or more a sometimes bewildering array of new initiatives all premised on the decentralisation of power away from London and towards local areas.

This lecture draws upon a new book which, for the first time, presents an analysis of the latest tranche of these initiatives (i.e. 2010-present) from “top to bottom”, i.e. from the national to the community scales, to explore how the governance framework for and of cities has changed in recent years, and what effects this has had on the distribution of power and resources within cities. The focus is on England and the wider UK, with international examples used throughout for comparative purposes.
