New report urges policymakers to streamline planning to support the growth of the Golden Triangle’s knowledge economies

A life sciences super-cluster across the Golden Triangle between Oxford, Cambridge and London could help power Britain’s economic recovery from Covid-19 says a major report from New London Architecture (NLA) published today (8th June, 2020).

The report calls for the Chancellor’s forthcoming emergency budget to speed up the delivery of vital lab space, housing and other infrastructure that can attract talent and ensure fast-growing spin-outs can remain in Britain rather than relocate to Boston or other major science hubs.

The UK’s life sciences sector has a critical mass in the knowledge economies of London, Oxford and Cambridge. But rising house prices and rents are threatening to price out talent and the businesses who spin-out of the UK’s leading higher education institutes that reside in the region.

NLA’s report, Knowledge Networks: London and the Ox-Cam Arc, calls for the government to streamline planning, to speed up development in the region, and enable the creation of a U.S-style super-cluster in the Golden Triangle.
