Chair of the Sheffield City Region Combined Authority, Cllr Sir Stephen Houghton has given an interview to Public Sector Executive this week about how the region’s devolution deal is progressing. He reveals that details of how a new mayoral combined authority will work, and how the mayor’s powers will operate will be formalised over the summer, with a formal consultation on the scheme taking place from 27 June. However, he adds that the lack of a template for devolution deals has been a “double-edged sword”.
