The global role of London needs a new agenda of action to support its commercial, labour and housing markets and to strengthen London’s relationships with other major UK cities. This requires a high level non-statutory public – private forum for cooperation and strategic planning.
The Common Futures Network has partnered with the Centre for Cities, the University of Westminster and the Regional Studies Association to promote a national conversation on the governance of London and the Wider South East region.
In June 2017 a round- table and seminar were held (see links to seminar programme and papers below). The outcome of the seminar and roundtable will be taken forward over the coming year. All related documents can be found in the documents folder in City Regional Frameworks folder.
