This resource seeks to generalise ‘smart city’ principles and experiences to wider urban and non-urban areas. It does not attempt to repeat the many research works written about smart cities or repeat much of the rhetoric. Rather, it considers the impact of applying the ideas and the best practice of smart cities to rural and semi-urban areas, including small cities and towns, whole regions and the whole nation.
It looks at the impact of devolution to UK regions and the exit from the EU, and the value that can be brought from new connected technologies to local, integrated public services. In particular, it looks at the role of local government and ‘digital leaders’ in promoting and facilitating smart places, wherever they are situated.
