Following the spending review and the statement by the Government that it will ‘work towards further devolution deals with other major city regions’, Metro Dynamics have prepared an initial review that summarises and brings together the main details of the deals agreed so far.
We have now updated this review to include the additional announcements from the Spending Review regarding devolution to Greater Manchester.
Our review looks at the proposed governance arrangements, the finance and funding issues and the devolved powers and responsibilities that have been agreed so far for the six City Regions that have agreed devolution deals with Government.
We will be posting further analysis over the coming days and weeks on what this means for the City Regions that already have a deal, and for those that don’t.
