The dwindling confidence in the UK government can be seen as unattractive to global investors, in turn jeopardising the opportunity for cities to grow.

This means local leaders are becoming increasingly important in the battle to keep their cities on track. But in the case of Bristol, which has voted to remove the position of city mayor and return to being run by a committee of councillors, could this be a hazardous decision? 

In this EG Cities Live podcast we will discuss what this means for the likes of Bristol’s Western Harbour development.

Podcast will be available 11 October.
