Final approval for East Midlands Combined County Authority

It means the EMCCA will now formally be established. Through a devolution deal, the new body will see the region benefit from a £1.14 billion investment package, spread over a 30-year period, alongside devolved powers around transport, housing, skills and adult education, economic development and net zero.

It also means voters across the area, including Ashfield, will get to vote for the very first East Midlands Mayor. The poll takes place on Thursday 2 May 2024.

Early initiatives related to the new authority have already seen Ashfield receive £583,000 funding through the Midlands Net Zero Hub which will be used for solar panels on our social housing.

In the meantime you can read more about the EMCCA on the East Midlands Devolution website:
