Ambitions for the North – A spatial framework for people and places in the North of England



Submission summary: ‘Ambitions for the North’ contains a set of shared ambitions which can promote co-operation across the North and use improved strategic planning to deliver a more sustainable and inclusive approach to growth.

The framework is designed to succinctly address a myriad of complex and overlapping topics, including transport/infrastructure, climate change, housing and economic growth, changes in economic geography, increasing isolation/polarisation, and complex governance arrangements across the North.

The work deserves an award for the innovative way in which it responds to a range of complex challenges with the aim of promoting economic growth, whilst generating lasting benefits for local communities.
