  • We are passionate about creating a stronger, fairer future urban Britain, putting people and environment at first, unlocking the full potential of all our cities and citizens.
  • Our Mission is to create globally competitive cities at the heart of all our regional economies, which are more productive, inclusive, greener places to live, work and visit.
  • We do this by innovating, developing practical solutions to the biggest challenges our cities face, turning ideas into action and building partnerships to deliver change, based on evidence. 
  • Our economic and population size gives us a unique experience and understanding of how big cities work, which we use to get things done at pace and scale, and to deliver benefits for the wider regions we serve.
