New deal offered to East Anglia
on June 8, 2016, posted in East Anglia categories
New devolution deals for the region have been unveiled, with plans for two elected mayors in the region. The new deals – one for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and one for Norfolk and Suffolk – have been supported by council leaders after the previous deal – which joined all councils under one mayor – was rejected by several councils. The Government has said that if either deal is accepted then devolution will go ahead in that area, even if the other deal is rejected.
