Parliament Street Policy Units

Parliament Street hosts a number of policy units to encourage their early growth and development, acting as an incubator. Our units include:


Development of policy ideas to support the devolution of powers from Westminster to elected ‘metro’ mayors, such as the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, and the Mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham.  Metropolicy operates branches in these areas that run independently of the centre. The central Metropolicy body acts as a way to coordinate ideas and share knowledge/expertise across the metro regions, which supports adoption of best practices and reduction in duplicated effort.
