Devolution Deal - Public Event

County Council News

Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Sunderland councils have agreed in principle to a devolution deal which the Government has confirmed it is ‘minded to’ approve.  Northumberland County Council welcome your attendance at a public consultation event on 15 February in Alnwick to find out more and give your views on these proposals.

4pm on Wednesday, 15 February 2023, at St James' Church Hall, Pottergate, Alnwick, NE66 1JW

A devolution deal for the region means unlocking £4.2 billion of investment over 30 years and seeing additional powers transferred from Whitehall to local people with better knowledge and experience of our communities.  This deal represents a significant opportunity to make a difference to people who live and work in the North East, and could have a hugely positive impact on the big issues that matter to you.

As well as the public event, the County Council would also encourage you to give your views using the online survey.  There is more information below about the deal itself, the how to book for the public event, and how to give your views through the survey.
