Arup: Seven transformative ideas for the East Midlands: a blueprint for change

Following the election of East Midlands Mayor, Arup have published 7 ideas to transform the East Midlands. They aim to promote discussion and debate over opportunities presented by the devolution deal and establishment of a Mayor and EMCC.

A devolution deal for the East Midlands, and the election of an inaugural mayor, provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to energise the region’s ambitions, and enduringly transform its relationship with national government.

The East Midlands has historically experienced persistent under-investment with local authorities and institutions lacking capacity and resource to advocate and maximise opportunities.

New local powers will help the region tackle challenges and harness its true economic potential. The East Midlands offers unique social, economic, and natural diversity – this devolution opportunity will allow the region’s individuality to be celebrated and harnessed.

We have used our global expertise, local knowledge and lived experience from working in the East Midlands for over 50 years to set out seven transformative ideas which can be used to inform conversations and key decision making. These ideas are designed around creating a sustainable and inclusive environment for people to live, work, learn and visit, with change being achievable in the first mayoral term.
