Proposed North East devolution deal backed by regional Chamber

The North East’s largest business organisation has confirmed its support for the region’s devolution deal.

The North East England Chamber of Commerce has written to the region’s seven local authorities to back the planned North East Mayoral Combined Authority (NEMCA) and call for it to have a strong business voice. The letter supports the consultation on the devolution deal for the North East and identifies a number of priorities for the mayoral authority if it gets the go-ahead.

The proposed devolution deal would bring around £4.2bn of investment to the North East and is expected to help create 17,500 new jobs. The North East LEP would become part of the combined authority if the deal went through, offering a voice for the business sector in decisions made in future.
