The government released their Levelling Up White Paper on 2nd February, outlining plans for possible devolution for Nottinghamshire and Nottingham.
Leaders of all the local councils met in October 2021 and agreed on a joint vision for devolution in our area. They are again set to meet and discuss the options for the city and county and agree on the best way forward, before presenting their plans to the government.
Our Leader Cllr Simon Robinson highlighted the proactive approach of the Councils.
He said: “Devolved powers for Rushcliffe, Nottinghamshire and Nottingham could offer great opportunities for local decision making that can only benefit residents and allow us to have more say on how local services are shaped.
“We will now digest the white paper in full and look to the future with a possible collaboration that is positive and forward thinking.”
