The Government is talking to councils across the UK about devolution.

Devolution is when certain powers and funding are transferred down from Central Government to a local area.  It means that local areas would take on responsibilities from Government, not duplicate them.

This could mean that a greater number of important decisions are decided locally instead of by Government, this would also mean new funding.  This could include decision-making powers and funding in areas such as housing, transport and major infrastructure schemes, such as road and rail projects.

You can find out more about the proposals and how you can take part in the consultation on the Devolution - A deal for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough page.
