This chapter discusses the history of local and regional economic development (LRED) in England. It explains that LRED activity in England has grown enormously since the 1970s and that the most strongly developed local economic-development functions tended to be in the larger metropolitan local governments. The English experience stands out in several ways. First, there is the relatively large size of many of the organisations involved in LRED, and second, there is the strong dependence of these organisations on central government and the European Union for funding.

Keywords:   LRED, England, local governments, metropolitan governments, funding, European Union
