Should the UK policy response to Covid-19 depend on where people live or work? The pandemic has highlighted persistent disparities in economic, health and social outcomes across neighbourhoods, cities and regions. Some industries, and as a direct result some places, will be hit harder than others. And places will differ in the speed at which they can recover - the experience of coastal towns will likely differ substantially from that of our highest performing cities. To what extent should policy reflect this, and be tied to the government’s ‘levelling-up’ agenda?
