York and North Yorkshire proposed devolution deal

22 August 2022

City of York and North Yorkshire councils have negotiated a proposed devolution deal between central government and local authorities for York and North Yorkshire.   ​

​The proposed devolution deal, if agreed by respective councils and informed by public consultation, would deliver more local powers and decision making and more funding.  As it stands today, the proposed deal is worth up to £750m in total to York & North Yorkshire, and would see a regionally elected mayor champion our region and form a direct relationship with government to secure future funding.
