Our priorities and vision for North East Lincolnshire are clear. To create a stronger economy and stronger communities.
To achieve these aims we need to work in new ways with partners in the public and private sectors, the voluntary and community sector, and with individuals, families and communities. We must address the issues we face with creativity and innovation if we are to achieve what we want for the area.
A devolution deal for Greater Lincolnshire has been announced in the Autumn statement, which could see existing money and power move from central government to local decisionmakers.
The proposal explains the powers, funding and flexibilities required to address long term challenges and deliver on opportunities across Greater Lincolnshire. It supports levelling up across the area with a focus improving the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of people who live and work in Greater Lincolnshire.
