Multi-area agreement

Multi-area agreement

A multi-area agreement was an English political framework that aimed to encourage cross boundary partnership working at the regional and sub-regional levels.[1] They were defined by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) as voluntary agreements between two or more top tier (county councils or metropolitan district councils) or unitary local authorities, their partners and the government to work collectively to improve local economic prosperity.[2]

There are currently fifteen signed off multi-area agreements in England:[3][4] However, these are due to be folded into the new Local Enterprise Partnerships preferred by the Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalition government [1].
