The “Cities Outlook 2024” report by the Centre for Cities provides a comprehensive analysis of the UK’s economic landscape, focusing on the role of its largest cities and towns in driving national growth. It highlights the varied economic performance across different regions, emphasising significant disparities in productivity, wages, and housing affordability. The report suggests key changes to improve the situation, such as sticking with the levelling-up agenda, introducing a new phase of devolution, and reforming the planning system. It discusses the economic challenges faced by cities, the importance of large cities in regional economies, and the need for political and economic strategies to address these issues effectively.
