North Somerset rejects devo deal


Category: West of England

North Somerset Council has rejected the West of England devo deal at a council vote this week, warning it could lead to a “Bristol-centric mayor and a combined authority acting against the interest” of the area. The decision comes after Bath and North East Somerset Council asked its Leader to renegotiate the deal and remove the requirement for an elected Mayor. North Somerset leader Cllr Nigel Ashton said the current deal proposed by Government “is not attractive enough for us to support”.
