Plans for a locally-led economic partnership for the Oxford to Cambridge "corridor" have been approved by the government.

A pan-regional partnership (PRP) aims to boost investment in the area.

The Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Michael Gove, said having a "strong regional brand" meant the area could compete for "investment on the global stage".

The PRP said it believed that by working together the area could be "greater than the sum of its parts".

Pan-regional partnerships, external are described as those which co-ordinate collaboration between local authorities and the government to develop economic and infrastructure strategy.

The Oxford to Cambridge PRP covers Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and parts of Oxfordshire - an area which has a population of about 3.5 million people.

In a joint statement, the member authorities said the partnership's role would be to "champion the region as a world leader of innovation and business" and "achieve environmentally sustainable and inclusive growth".
