City Minutes: What do the 2021 metro mayoral elections mean for England’s cities?

Anthony Breach on the results of England's 2021 metro mayoral elections and what they mean for urban politics.

Podcast published on 12 May 2021

Last week eight metro mayors were elected to govern some of England’s largest city regions. While the Conservatives cemented their position in parts of the former Red Wall, Labour made gains elsewhere, including in Southern England.

What do these results mean for people living in cities, and how will the Government respond to several new Labour metro mayors? To discuss these questions Andrew Carter is joined by Centre for Cities’ Senior Analyst Anthony Breach.
