Published on

This SlideShare summarises the findings of the inaugural UK City Leaders’ Survey, which was developed jointly by Centre for Cities and Arup. You can read the full report here: http://bit.ly/2BQFThW

The survey asked the elected leaders of the UK’s largest urban areas about their ambitions and frustrations on issues such as Brexit, devolution, the upcoming Spending Review and housing.

Overview of the survey findings

Policy priorities

Housing and regeneration was identified as the biggest overall economic priority for the majority of leaders surveyed.

Among their priorities for improving transport, leaders tended to identify roads within their area and supporting a shift from cars to other modes of transport as the two key areas.

Leaders highlighted inclusive growth as another of their broader priorities, particularly through adult learning and helping those who are isolated from the job market to access opportunities.

Public service pressures

Social care was identified by almost every leader as being the public service under the most pressure.

Leaders identified two main challenges to service delivery – increasing demand for services and revenue funding.

Devolution and funding

All leaders demonstrated an appetite for devolution across a range of policy areas, from skills to borrowing for housing and transport.

After Brexit

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund, the proposed replacement for former EU funding, was what leaders most wanted more say on after Brexit.
