Levelling Up Fund and London

Responding to the allocation of Levelling Up Funds announced by the government this week, Claire Harding, Research Director at Centre for London said:

“The debate about whether regions are getting their fair share of money obscures the bigger issue that competitive funding pots are not the way to distribute funds.

This was a clear finding from our research – it’s inefficient and wastes local resources.

Real levelling up means real devolution across the country.”
