Devolution: Have your say on the first steps
We're working to begin the process of agreeing a York and North Yorkshire devolution proposal, to form a Combined Authority alongside councils across North Yorkshire.
Devolution usually focuses on growing and strengthening local economies. A deal for York and North Yorkshire could see powers and funding transferred from Westminster, to decision-makers in the local region.
A devolution deal for York and North Yorkshire could potentially unlock significant funding for York.
Tell us whether you support the idea of devolving powers and funding from central Government to York and North Yorkshire.
If you support devolution, tell us which areas would you would like to see benefit from additional investment in our city, such as:
Infrastructure and Place, including investment for York Station, the delivery of a York Riverside Walkway, funding to improve York Castle Museum’s, progress the Castle Gateway scheme, implement York’s Cultural Strategy, funding to transform secondary shopping areas in Haxby and Acomb and develop proposals to relocate a significant Civil Service or parliamentary presence to the York Central site.
Innovation, including investment in low carbon technologies and bio-tech innovation to make York and North Yorkshire the UK’s first carbon negative region.
Tourism, including the development of a tourism plan between York and North Yorkshire and Visit Britain.
Housing, including delivering affordable homes on council sites, such as York Central
Skills and Adult Learning, including the creation of a low carbon skills programme to up-skill the existing workforce
