City leaders met at Highbury in preparation to Brexit
Elected Mayors, Leaders and Chief Executives from the UK’s Core Cities met at Highbury on 27 January to discuss how cities could respond to the financial situation facing local government, the development of industrial strategy and the consequences of the Brexit vote.
Core Cites UK is made up of Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield, and together they represent a quarter of the UK economy.
Following the meeting, Core Cities UK chair and leader of Leeds City Council, Judith Blake, said that cities needed powers to replicate Chamberlain’s revolutionary work.
