The governance of place

How regions, cities and towns are governed, and how different institutions provide place leadership, matters for building prosperous, resilient, inclusive and sustainable economies and communities. Under this priority, YU will play a leading role in advocating the importance of decentralisation/devolution to place development and will promote universities as key actors within such arrangements. Equally, YU will strengthen Yorkshire’s ‘case’ within national and north of England policies, projects and programmes.
