English Core Cities Group


English Core Cities Group

The Core Cities Group is a coalition of some of England's major regional cities:

The group originated in 1995 as a partnership among eight cities.

The cities have come together to promote their common interests as the major cities in the English regions outside London. No cities from South East England or the East of England, which surround Greater London, are represented. The cities are also motivated by the need to promote their economies, especially in the context of the European Union. They have no special status under English local government law.

The eight city councils are also members of the pan-European Eurocities network, a group co-founded by the Birmingham City Council.

The Core Cities Group has eight main interests, namely:

  • transport and connectivity
  • innovation and business support
  • skills and employment
  • sustainable communities
  • culture and creative industries
  • climate change
  • finance and industry
  • governance
