Delivering the Deal with robust and transparent Governance to ensure growth and sustainability are at the heart of decision making.

Governance and our Partnership Board​​

The Board is supported by Chief Executives, Chief Economic Development Officers and Finance Officers from the partner authorities. There are six seats on the Partnership Board, made up of one representative from each of the partner local authorities, and one for the Chair of the Economic Forum.​​
