We published the Review of Sub-national Economic Development and Regeneration in July last year. We subsequently published an issues paper in December last year, updating stakeholders on progress on implementing the SNR. Yesterday we published a consultation document "Prosperous Places: Taking forward the Review of Sub-national Economic Development and Regeneration". The consultation asks for views on the implementation of new regional strategies and the creation of a new duty on local authorities to carry out an economic assessment of their area. It also consults on possible statutory arrangements for sub-regional collaboration among local authorities.
