Digital and Transport Infrastructure

Digital has been identified as a high-value, pan-Northern strength. NP11 is working to identify specific opportunities for collaboration and delivery.

In 2021, NP11 will a Northern Powerhouse Digital Proposition, setting out the scale of the pan-Northern offer and ask, as well as priorities for further activity in partnership with Government.

This will undertake mapping and gapping of Northern assets, infrastructure plans, and data sharing, along with making recommendations on how to support the digital economy and accelerate the rollout of improved digital connectivity.

Our Ambition

Our ambition is for people, information, goods and businesses to be connected seamlessly within the North, to other parts of the UK, and internationally in order to realise the North’s full potential.
