This paper explores how distributed and relational forms of place-based leadership can be facilitated in environments with constrained local governance capabilities. It is based on an in-depth case study of a university-hosted collaborative platform situated in a city/regional institutional landscape marked by limited local devolution and public sector austerity. The research contributes to a fuller understanding of place-based leadership by analysing how actors can mobilise interpretive and network forms of power outside formal governance structures to encourage long-term thinking and broker innovative cross-organisational projects. Equally, however, it highlights their continuing dependence on legitimating forms of local institutional and resource authority.
