Devolution Deals are, and will remain, a key part of our plan to support growth up and down the country as we build an economy that works for everyone. To date, the government has adopted a bottom-up and iterative approach to agreeing devolution – through a “deal-making” mechanism. This process allows local areas to develop devolution proposals through the basis of local consent and dialogue.
