Cross-authority working on the increase

Date: 5/6/2015

The Queen's Speech announced a further devolution of powers for cities with 'metro mayors'.

Catriona Riddell, the POS Strategic Planning Specialist, told Planning magazine that cross-authority working around a strategic plan on the lines being followed by Manchester is already open to all local authorities and many are considering it or have taken it forward.

Riddell also commented that the Society is working with the District Councils Network on a streamlined approach to joint planning that would not require the formal structures set up by the Greater Manchester authorities.
