Councils working together at the sub-regional level can be an effective way of delivering many aspects of economic development, regeneration, transport, planning, skills and employment. Many different models of cross-boundary working have been devised from Multi-area agreements through to Economic Prosperity Boards, combined authorities, and City-region pilot schemes as announced in Manchester and Leeds last year.
