					SMART GROWTH: The Midlands Way - CONSULTATION QUESTIONS:

On any response (written or email), please include:
    Contact name and email address;
    Organisation, and Position/Job Title (if appropriate).

The questions below are intended to prompt responses and raise key issues
for consideration as part of the consultation exercise. However, please do not
feel restricted to addressing these questions. The ‘Smart Growth: the
Midlands Way’ Steering Group welcomes input, comments and suggestions
on any issues.

Key Questions

   Are you/your organisation interested in helping develop Smart Growth
    further? What could your organisation contribute to the identified actions?

   Are the links and relationships clear between the proposed aims of the
    Smart Growth initiative and the Deputy Prime Minister’s Sustainable
    Communities Plan (SCP) agenda?

   Does Smart Growth put sufficient emphasis on the potential contribution of
    the Midlands to the delivery of the SCP?

   Do you think that the focus on a collaborative approach, building on
    existing strategies and seeking to accelerate their implementation and
    delivery, is an appropriate basis for Smart Growth?

   Is there sufficient emphasis on existing cross-regional cooperation and
    joint-working?

   Are the links clear between Smart Growth and the existing regional policy
    framework?

   Do you consider that the action proposals, broad tasks and components
    identified in the consultation document (Section 5) represent a sound basis
    for implementation and delivery of Smart Growth?

   In seeking to add value at the ‘pan-regional’ scale, do you consider the
    three broad Action Proposals of Connections, Renaissance, and
    Productivity are appropriate, or are key issues missing?

   Do you consider that the Smart Growth initiatives distinguishes sufficiently
    between those initiatives which the two regions, working together, can
    deliver, and those for which government support is needed?

   Do you consider that the Smart Growth initiative should be seen as having
    a role both in the implementation and delivery of existing strategies, AND
    as a means of seeking to influence Government priorities for investment?
   To what extent do you consider that there can be cooperation and cross-
    regional innovation, as opposed to competition?
