Number 2: The Northern Powerhouse

The Northern Powerhouse initiative was developed to address issues around economic growth and productivity in the North of England. It aims to rebalance the UK's economy away from the domination of London and the South East.

The Northern Powerhouse covers the North-East, North-West and Yorkshire. It's the birthplace of the industrial revolution which is evident in its rich heritage.

So how can heritage strengthen the delivery of the Northern Powerhouse objectives? In this edition of Heritage Online Debate we consider this and other questions. To start the debate we invited some prominent people to share their insights with us. We hope that you'll contribute to this debate too. Not only on the articles below, but also with your thoughts on how to progress this agenda within the heritage sector.
