An Inquiry into Regional Inequalities Towards a Framework For Action

The UK2070 Commission is an independent inquiry into city and regional inequalities in the UK. Chaired by Lord Kerslake, it has been set up to conduct a review of the policy and spatial issues related to the UK’s long-term city and regional development.

Until Friday 4th December 2020, the UK2070 Teesside Taskforce is running a Call for Evidence into the potential of freeports, steel, hydrogen and the wider net zero agenda to boost opportunity for people from across the Tees Valley.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, in October 2020 the UK2070 Commission published Go Big – Go Local: The UK2070 Report on a New Deal for Levelling Up the United Kingdom.

The Final Report of the UK2070 Commission: Make No Little Plans – Acting At Scale For A Fairer And Stronger Future was published in February 2020.

The work of the UK2070 Commission is being supported by Turner and Townsend, a professional services company headquartered in Leeds.

Why 2070?

The reference to 2070 is an explicit recognition that the timescales for successful city and regional development are often very long, in contrast to the short-termism of political cycles.
