Details

In May 2017, there will be a major shift in the way we run our country. Powers, budgets and responsibilities will be passed down from central government to new combined authority mayors in 6 regions across England:

  • Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
  • Greater Manchester
  • Liverpool City Region
  • Tees Valley
  • West Midlands
  • West of England

The mayor will represent their regions across the country and around the world. They will work with leaders of local councils and businesses to create jobs, boost skills, build homes and improve travel.

Though it is not adopting a directly elected mayor, Cornwall is also taking forward a devolution deal.

These guides provide more information about the powers and budgets being passed down to these 7 English regions, and who will be responsible for what.
