Hull and East Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority Proposal

In addition, Hull City Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council have produced a draft 'Proposal’ document, setting out the goals of establishing a Mayoral Combined Authority.

The Proposal is a key part of the process required by law to make changes to current local governance arrangements.

The Proposal sets out the local economic context, why we need change, what we're proposing to do, and how the devolution powers and investment agreed help deliver that.

It also provides more information on setting up the Hull and East Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (MCA).

Consultation

The Proposal forms the basis of our consultation and is available to view online, or on request as a hard copy from your local library.

The Proposal remains in draft until the completion of the public consultation, when it may be updated in response to public feedback. Should the decision be made to proceed with devolution arrangement, the final Proposal will be submitted to the Secretary of State.
