City/City Region Deal

In July 2012, the then LEP Chair, Robert Hough, and the Chair of Liverpool City Region Cabinet, Mayor of Liverpool (Joe Anderson), submitted a Liverpool City Region Deal to Government. 

The deal built on a separately agreed Liverpool City Mayoral Deal, between Liverpool City and Government, introducing wider reaching components covering the whole of the Liverpool City Region. The submission can be found here. More specifically, an implementation plan was agreed that allocated responsibility for delivery of each of the agreed actions, the plan can be found here.

Since agreement of the deal, the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority was formed and through a Devolution Deal became a Mayoral Combined Authority. As a result, and so as not to have multiple completing deals within the City Region any actions that were not complete were covered by the Devolution Deal. The Devolution Deal is under the Governance of the Metro Mayor together with the Combined Authority, the LEP Chair is a non-voting Member of the LCR CA.
