“Devolution means bringing power from Whitehall and Westminster to a local level. It is based on the obvious truth that local people know what’s best for their communities. That’s why we were keen to partner with PLACED Academy as part of getting closer to local communities to find out what’s important to them. We will then use that information to inform the Combined Authority’s future plans and activity.”
The Combined Authority is led by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and brings together Liverpool City Region’s six local authorities – Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral – to tackle the big issues that matter to us all.
We work together to make an impact in areas such as transport, employment and skills, culture, digital and housing. By using the devolved powers we have, we can make a real and meaningful difference to the lives of the people living and working in the area.
