Create a new future for North of Tyne

The initial devolution deal means £20m worth of investment a year for the next 30 years which will provide an extra £600m for the area. It also means new powers to shape our own future and meet the needs of local people and business.

Led by an Elected Mayor, the new North of Tyne Combined Authority will manage a range of powers on housing, enterprise and innovation, economic infrastructure, skills, education and employment. Decisions will be made locally to benefit our local economy and the people who live, work, study and visit here.

Over the 30-year-period, this could create up to 10,000 new and better jobs, generate £1.1bn for our local economy and pull in a further £2.1bn in private sector investment.
