Welcome to the Policy Liaison Group for Regeneration & Levelling Up

The cross-party group was formed to provide durable solutions and recommendations to Government and other policy makers as we progress the agenda to regenerate towns and cities and level up opportunities across the country. We believe that Parliament has a vital role to play in shaping this agenda, and we are committed to providing a platform for informed debate and informed policy recommendations. 

 

As an impartial platform, we facilitate robust discussions on policy, aiming to bridge the gap between the commercial sector and governmental entities at various levels, including national, combined authorities, and local government. We aim to provide a dynamic two-way communication channel, offering a neutral ground where the industry can engage, debate, and guide policies with key decision-makers while benefiting from an enriching environment for networking.
