RSA - The City Growth Commission

RSA - The City Growth Commission

Some while back I was following the development of charter cities as part of the sustainable development and economic development interest that I have.

Now with the rise of nationalism and the Scottish referendum dawning tomorrow with a result that either way seems it will be a scism , the debate about centralised and devolved power is really unfolding.

From Cities Growth Commission Jim O'Neil there is both an active academic and community business voice proposing serious debate over the last couple of years > that is being picked up right now > and its across the political spectrum.

From Scotland to UK, From Cornwall to Yorkshire, From the city state of London to the merger of Manchester and Liverpool, there are many unfolding scenario's that are being spoken of. It will be very interesting to see how this persists or morphs over the next two election cycles in the UK and how international developments, particularly of cities in China and Africa effect things in the run up to 2030 and beyond. Must revisit this in 5 and 10 yrs.
