Abstract

Consultation on the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy Green Paper is now closed and we await the response to feedback received. This document, according to the preface, “is a critical part of our plan for post-Brexit Britain”. We are encouraged to think that regions will be considered as part of the solution, not just a problem. The Strategy, we are told, will create a stronger and fairer society across all regions and “not just in the more prosperous places in London and the South East”. The regional message is picked up in the strategy under pillar 10 – “creating the right institutions to being together sectors and places”. This use of the word “place” rather than “region” or “sub-region” is intriguing. “Place” has been dropped into the policy lexicon in a variety of guises and contexts in recent years and its precise meaning is more than of passing academic interest.
