What Next

Devolution Deal – Next Steps

  • The devolution deal has now been approved by the Sheffield City Region Combined Authority and all nine members
  • As part of the process, two non-constituent members have signalled their intention to join the Combined Authority. These members are Chesterfield and Bassetlaw Councils
  • The Devolution Deal will now be formalised in what is called a “Scheme” which will set out how a new Mayoral Combined Authority will work and how the Mayor’s powers will operate
  • Formal consultation on the Scheme will take place from 27 June 2016
  • The Scheme and the consultation results will then go to the Secretary of State for approval
  • The Scheme will then go through Parliament and complete this process by the end of 2016
  • Mayoral Elections will then take place in May 2017
