How We Make Decisions


The Sheffield City Region brings together public and private sector leaders to make decisions that drive economic growth and create a better place to live, work and enjoy.

We are committed to robust decision-making and ensuring that our financial management processes mean public money is being spent responsibly. Each year we review and refine our procedures to further improve our accountability.

We also strive to achieve high standards for being open and transparent with the public about how we are investing the money we receive.

All decisions of the Mayor, Mayoral Combined Authority and LEP are publicly available on the Forward Plan and you can also see individual decisions here.
