3 Economic justifications The Government itself, in its White Paper of 1997 which set out its proposals for Regional Development Agencies (RDAs), saw the role of regions very much in terms of economic competitiveness and modernisation. It argued that a regional tier of governance was necessary because English regions were under-performing compared with equivalent regions elsewhere in Europe (DETR, 1997). It suggested that greater co-ordination was needed at the regional level than the existing fragmented structures allowed.

Smith and Sheate, 2001: 743) The RSDFs explicitly look to their RPG to assist with the pursuit of climate change objectives and sustainable development, particularly to assist in meeting the energy efficiency and renewables objectives, with high quality energy-efficient buildings, designs and materials, and spatial patterns. In the West Midlands, for instance, the framework states that the RPG should help to prioritise habitats, landscapes and urban green spaces, to promote strong energy and water efficiency standards, and to promote bold and radical land-use and economic development policies.

Developing visions for the regions with a longer time-horizon than conventional strategies is one strategic field in which the regions could really make a difference. In this respect, the RSDFs have achieved little. It might be countered that central government itself has not yet published strategic guidance for thinking beyond the time-frame of the Climate Change Programme. Despite this, the regions have the evidence of the subUK scoping studies to draw on, in addition to significant work on scenario development, yet these do not seem to have permeated the thinking shown in the RSDFs.
