Reimagining Regional Development

Our Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) is our framework for both thinking about and planning for a successful and sustainable future for our Region.

The RSES has been crafted through extensive engagement and is being delivered in partnership with associates locally, regionally, nationally and at an EU level.

The Assembly is responsible for regional development, and for us, this means:

1. FUNDING – maximizing investment in the right places
2. PLANNING – evidence-based policymaking
3. MONITORING performance of the region
4. ADVOCATING compact growth and connected communities
5. LEADING climate action and biodiversity
6. INNOVATING sustainable transport and environmental solutions

Today we share with you our ‘Reimagining Regional Development’ report; this document shares a snapshot of work already underway by our team on several RSES-identified projects.

This report is by no means an exhaustive list of our achievements but communicates our key successes to date, and most importantly shares the measurable impact of regional collaboration and partnership.

The NWRA is more than halfway through its Corporate Plan period. The ‘Reimagining Regional Development’ report captures the successes to date while also identifying key areas to now focus on for delivering the full RSES programme of work. We look forward to sharing the results of this work with you again in the future.
