The devolution revolutionfor the South West took another step forward this month. Devolution would see more powers and finance devolved from Westminster to the region to work together to deliver more for the residents in key areas such as the economy, homes, health and social care and to close the productivity gap, improve road, rail and broadband links. There will be a full public consultation on any proposal to introduce a Combined Authority, which would consist of representatives from Devon and Somerset county councils, Plymouth and Torbay councils, the 13 district councils in the two counties and Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks.
Each council now needs to formally approve the Combined Authority proposals after which the negotiations for finance, powers and responsibilities will take place between the region and central government. However, all areas have been reassured that their devolution proposals do not require an elected mayor.
