DEVOLUTION CONSULTATION

From 8 July 2016, people across Norfolk and Suffolk are being asked for their views on a proposed devolution deal and associated governance arrangements for the two counties.

 

What is devolution?

Devolution is the redistribution of power and funding from central to local government.

This means that more decisions are made locally by combined authorities.

A combined authority is a partnership where councils join together to make collective decisions on matters that affect the whole area.

The majority of councils across Norfolk and all in Suffolk, along with the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, supported the deal and agreed to ask the public for their views.

You can have your say by visiting www.eastangliadevo.co.uk and completing the online survey.

 

Consultation will run until 23 August 2016
