Following the Coalition government's abolition of the regional spatial strategies (RSS) and associated regional institutional frameworks (North West Development Agency, Government Office for the North West), how can we still plan at the sub-regional and city region scale? How are the diverse needs of the urban and rural parts of our region going to be addressed and accommodated? Can Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and the Localism Bill's proposed 'duty to cooperate' adequately fill the strategic gap? These and related issues will be considered at this event which will focus on the 'bigger picture' of strategic spatial planning across the North West region.
