York and North Yorkshire devolution

A proposed York and North Yorkshire devolution deal was announced on Monday 1 August 2022.

At the full council meeting on Thursday 23 February 2023, it was agreed that we will move forward with the devolution deal having considered the findings of a significant public engagement and consultation exercise undertaken late last year.

The results of the consultation will now be submitted to Government, and it's expected that the Secretary of State will approve the drafting of legislation to allow the creation of York and North Yorkshire Combined Authority in the coming months.

If that passes through parliamentary process, then a new Combined Authority will be formed, and initial funding received, in the Autumn of 2023.

Under the deal, York and the North Yorkshire region will gain local control of funding to spend on the things that matter to our communities.

This will include £540 million of new government investment to spend on local priorities to produce growth, together with a range of devolved powers.
