The authors believe that if we are ever to rebalance our country and restore prosperity and worth to all of its parts then we have to endow all of its places with the abilities and powers to transform them for the better. This paper positions the needs of Britain’s Key Cities at the forefront of the devolution debate, advancing the argument that midsized cities are the ‘missing multipliers’ in the current drive to generate both economic growth and public service transformation. As a consequence the paper argues that they should be the next level for, and focus of, place-based devolution deals.
