Norfolk and Suffolk councils target devolution deal
Leaders of the 16 councils in Norfolk and Suffolk and the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership have presented a case to the Government for more power to be devolved to the two counties.
In November, representatives of the group presented to Lord Heseltine and received a very positive response. They then met to work up further detail on the potential devolution agreement - ranging from transport and infrastructure plans, to boosting productivity, housing and skills provision.
The group also discussed how they can form longer-term closer links with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. A delegation of district and county leaders with be meeting with Cambridgeshire / Peterborough in the New Year.
The Government department for Communities and Local Government will inform the group on how they wish to progress a deal for this region.
