MAYOR REACTS TO LEVEL 4 DEVOLUTION

Published 1 March 2024 at 3:49pm

Today (1 March), Secretary of State Michael Gove announced deeper devolution for South Yorkshire. 

South Yorkshire Mayor Oliver Coppard said:

"Today’s announcement of South Yorkshire’s ‘Level 4’ devolution deal is important and welcome news. 

That new deal will allow us to take back more control over how we spend money on things like transport and housing, and puts us at the forefront of the next wave of devolution deals, alongside West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Liverpool City Region.

"But my ambition is for South Yorkshire to go further and faster. Today's announcement lays the groundwork for a full single settlement funding deal in the future, as well as business rate retention, so that we can have greater freedoms and flexibilities to invest in projects that we know will make the biggest impact across our whole region."
