Conservative Conference Fringe | Urban Blues: The shifting political and economic role of UK cities
The contrast between Conservative success in the recent metro mayor elections versus their struggles in the general election calls into question how real the Tory urban revival is. This Localis and Core Cities fringe will discuss how government can continue to encourage cities to grow, and whether there is a distinctly Conservative agenda for cities.
