This chapter focuses on the situation in England and seeks to outline some of the attempts to build links between the city-region and the neighbourhood that are currently under development, bearing in mind that these are ongoing and lack a clear sense of what it is they are seeking to achieve. It notes that under the growing pressure of globalisation and the apparent decline of the nation state, the city-region (or metropolitan region) has increasingly been defined as the natural focus for economic development policies while the neighbourhood has become a key arena for a range of more ‘socially oriented’ policies associated with disadvantaged areas related to urban regeneration, service delivery, and policing. It emphasises that both are forms of territorial governance under construction emerging in an already complex governance environment.

Keywords:   England, city-region, neighbourhood, globalisation, economic development, territorial governance, disadvantaged areas, urban regeneration, service delivery, policing
