The latest publication from the National Infrastructure Commission, Partnering for Prosperity: A New Deal for the Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford Arc, highlights the importance of the Arc’s world class research, technology and innovation in driving prosperity, but acknowledges that this potential could be jeopardised by a chronic undersupply of housing.  To address this, the report highlights the importance of East-West infrastructure; of equipping local areas with the tools needed to deliver growth and the need for a long-term vision for the Arc and its sub-regions. 


There was further reference to the Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford Arc in the Industrial Strategy: building a Britain fit for all, published at the end of November.  The Industrial Strategy focuses upon five foundations of productivity: ideas, people, infrastructure, business environment and places. 


The South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) launched both their Strategic Economic Plan and Growing People Skills Strategy.  The Strategic Economic Plan aspires to double the size of the South East Midlands economy by 2050. 


There was positive recognition for Milton Keynes in Centre for Cities’ latest publication, The role of place in the UK’s productivity problem.  The report highlights MK as having one of the highest levels of productivity in the UK. 


Good Growth for Cities, the annual report by PwC and Demos, measuring economic wellbeing across the UK's cities and regions, ranks MK 6th
