Integrated territorial investment in the UK: a tale of two regions

Arno Van Der Zwet, Stephen Miller

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article reviews how the UK is implementing Integrated Territorial Investment (ITI) as part of the Sustainable Urban Development (SUD) agenda in 2014-20, in line with ERDF Article 7 requirements and the use of ITI outwith the Article 7 requirements. This article provides an overview of the current status of these instruments in the UK and how they are being implemented. The specific case of London is used to provide a detailed example at local level of the operationalisation of SUD using the ITI instruments. This is compared with the ITI in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly which is implemented as a non-SUD ITI. The article reflects on the main differences between the two approaches and their policy implications.
