The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has published a report bringing together the latest information on devolution agreements reached between the government and areas up to 31 March 2016.


These devolution agreements are where the Government undertakes to devolve powers and budgets to an area or region in return for changes in local governance and political accountability.
