SCR Combined Authority

Published 12th February 2013 at 3:55pm

Sheffield City Region’s economy operates across a number of local council areas. Because things like transport, skills, infrastructure and business growth support are best delivered at a bigger level than individual local councils but at a smaller level than national government we have established a Combined Authority which works together across a number of local council areas to better work together to grow our economy.

By working as a Combined Authority we are able to receive national government funding, secure powers over things like transport funding, skills funding and give ourselves the ability to raise funding to support the city regions economy.

The Combined Authority works very closely with the Local Enterprise Partnership to make sure our economic strategy drives the investment decisions in transport, infrastructure and skills that the Combined Authority make every six weeks.

Sheffield City Region Combined Authority comprises a formal membership of Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster whilst also including the councils of Bassetlaw, Chesterfield, North East Derbyshire, Derbyshire Dales and Bolsover as “non-constituent” members.
