SO, WHAT IS DEVOLUTION?
The 8-week public consultation for devolution is to gather your views through a survey on the scheme for York and North Yorkshire devolution.
The scheme is a document that sets out how devolution would change local governance arrangements and is a key part of the process required by law. You can read the full scheme by visiting the consultation platform to take part in the consultation.
This video explains more about devolution and the scheme. It is here to help you make an informed response to the consultation.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH MY RESPONSE TO THE CONSULTATION?
The consultation runs from 21st October to 16th December covering a period of 8 weeks. It is important that the consultation reaches a broad and representative range of responses from across the region and includes the views of people from different backgrounds, groups and organisations, including businesses and other key stakeholders.
At the end of the consultation period, based on this information, independent advisors from the Consultation Institute will analyse and prepare a summary of the responses and a report that explains the outcome of the consultation.
The conscious consideration of the consultation outcome will be facilitated through discussions at council meetings. These considerations will inform the decision as to whether or not to submit the scheme (as revised if appropriate) and a summary of the responses received to the Secretary of State.
