Tees Valley devolution deal
This document sets out a devolution deal giving Tees Valley greater control over transport, skills, business support and other areas.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer visited Tees Valley on 23 October 2015 to confirm the devolution deal.
This builds on earlier Growth Deals and gives the area more freedom to tailor services to local needs, support local businesses and create jobs.
