Devolution

As part of a move towards the greater devolution of powers and budgets away from Westminster, the Government has invited all local authorities in England to develop their own local proposals.

Devon has been working closely with councils in Somerset, Plymouth and Torbay along with Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks, NHS partners and the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership on a ‘Prospectus for Productivity’.

The agreed key local themes are economic growth, health, social care and wellbeing, and infrastructure and local resilience.
