Case studies library

One of the best ways cities can make the most of their resources is by learning from the experiences and ideas of other places. Our case study library brings together over 150 examples of good practice from cities in the UK and across the world. Drawn from more than ten years of Centre for Cities research, these examples include innovative policy making in areas such as housing and transport, skills and employment, business and enterprise, finance and tax, and leadership and devolution.

We are always keen to hear about new case studies, so please do get in contact if you would like to share good practice from your city.
