Much of the study proposed will involve following through arguments in the SNR and related research literature to establish the types of area - in terms such as their level of self-containment or overall scale - which are the most appropriate for delivering economic development with broad regional and national frameworks. Once these guidelines have been established, the empirical question for the study will involve comparing the two unitary boundary options against these guidelines.
