Fuelling the debate on the Cardiff City Region

At last I detect momentum building in relation to the creation of a true City Region for Cardiff!

I was delighted to read Robert Chapman’s piece on this very important subject in today’s Echo. Robert talks a lot of good sense. Improved interconnection between local authorities, the WAG, and the private sector on issues such as transport, housing and employment are key to realising the dream.


Let’s follow the example of other countries where city regions are the norm. As Robert says, the approach ‘provides an opportunity to do more with less – a case of getting ahead together’. Now is the time to fully embrace this concept and ensure that Cardiff and its regions do not get left behind again in the race for economic prosperity for us all.

Let’s give Dr Elizabeth Haywood and her team maximum support in their task, to make this concept a reality.
