Cabinet Approves Hull And East Yorkshire’s Devolution Deal

Devolution for Hull and East Yorkshire took another step forward today as Cabinet recommended that the deal on the table should go forward to public consultation in the new year.

Meeting at County Hall in today, ’s Cabinet recommended that the full council should:

Approve the consultation on the Hull and East Yorkshire Devolution Deal to create a Hull and East Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority, and publication of the associated proposal.

Approve that, subject to the outcome of the consultation being broadly supportive of the proposals, the leader of the council will exercise the executive decision on whether to submit the proposal to the Secretary of State for consideration.

Councillors will make a final decision on these points at a special full council meeting on December 21.

Cllr Anne Handley, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said:

“This is another important step in our devolution journey. I look forward to discussing this at full council next week, where I sincerely hope we will get an agreement to take this deal forward to consultation.

“If that happens, it will then be over to the people to have their say, and I urge everyone to get involved, as this affects every single person across the East Riding and Hull.”

The proposed Hull and East Yorkshire devolution deal was announced and signed last month and was discussed by the council’s overview and scrutiny management committee last Thursday.
