An East Anglia devolution deal was published in March 2016. Since then two deals within the region have been proposed – Norfolk/Suffolk and Cambridgeshire/Peterborough.
The proposed Norfolk/Suffolk deal has been endorsed by all councils in Suffolk and some in Norfolk. Other Norfolk councils have decided not to press on with a combined authority at this stage. All the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough councils have agreed their proposed deal. Details are awaited on the extent to which devolution will cover health and social care.
Elsewhere in the Eastern region discussions continue about potential devolution proposals and what shape, if any, deals in Essex, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire will take.
