Metro Mayor Engagement
The creation of the ‘metro Mayors’ has seen combined authority areas assume greater powers over a range of policy areas through devolution. This provides a unique opportunity for these regions to become leaders in creating high quality new developments and improving existing buildings. UKGBC is actively engaging with the new Mayors to encourage greater ambition from cities and provide support in the delivery of a low carbon built environment.
In summer 2017, UKGBC wrote to all six of the new combined authority Mayors offering to convene policy roundtable events on sustainable placemaking with businesses and other local stakeholders. Metro Mayor James Palmer of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough was the first to take up the offer, and you can read the full report below.
