Blueprint for a Great North Plan

There broad agreement among stakeholders in the region that we need a ‘Great North Plan’ – and that we need to get on with drawing one up. The new publication from IPPR North in partnership with the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), which includes a large-format wallchart, presents the best ideas to emerge on the issue, sets out principles for how the plan should be developed, illustrates the different layers of planning required, and proposes next steps for putting planning into action.

Make a powerhouse pledge

In developing the Great North Plan, IPPR North and the RTPI have met many businesses who have indicated their enthusiasm for dedicating some time and expertise to supporting the northern powerhouse initiative. In part, this can be done by being a great business – big or small – but for some businesses it might mean going the extra mile by getting involved in taking forward some of the ideas set out in our blueprint for a Great North Plan.
The pledge card below gives you the opportunity to say how your business would like to support the northern powerhouse. All information gathered will be stored and shared according to your preferences (see section 3).
