Councillors in favour of combined authority

Cllr Malcolm Chandler

South Holland Councillors have voted in favour of a Mayoral Combined Authority for Greater Lincolnshire.

At a meeting of full council on Wednesday, October 26, 31 councillors voted in favour of the proposals, with three voting against.

Cllr Malcolm Chandler, deputy leader of South Holland District Council, said: " I am delighted with the far-sighted decision taken by SHDC councillors at the council meeting on Wednesday.

"It demonstrates the determination of the council for the District to share and benefit from accelerated growth and increased value of the Greater Lincolnshire economy  which a devolution agenda is aimed to deliver.

"The final date for the ten leaders to sign off the current deal is 21 November 2016 and it is important that all ten councils continue to work together to achieve the full benefits of Devolved powers and the associated financial support available to Greater Lincolnshire. 

"I am delighted that South Holland will continue have a seat at that table."
