The Government has published its official and detailed response to the Lord Heseltine’s growth report, claiming to have accepted 81 of the 89 recommendations.

The response confirms the Government’s intention to establish a ‘Single Local Growth Fund’ and provides some detail of its design, but key decisions on its composition and size have been left to the outcome of the 2013 Spending Review.

This briefing will be of particular interest to executive members, cabinet portfolio members and senior officers with responsibilities for economic development, planning, transport, skills and regeneration.
