We are a united voice for the importance of our cities in delivering our country’s full economic potential, creating more jobs and improving people’s lives. Our cities already contribute more than a quarter of England and Scotland’s wealth combined, and with more freedoms and flexibilities, we are best placed to improve the UK’s economic fortunes. Core Cities are a vital delivery partner for Government and its agencies.
The nine Core Cities urban areas deliver 27% of the combined economic output of England and Scotland (24.6% of the UK economy) and are home to almost 18 million, 29.7% of the combined English and Scottish population (27.5% of the UK population).
