Who we are
The Sheffield City Region has a diverse economy comprising a dynamic core city, important towns and market towns, fabulous countryside and a significant rural economy. The City Region encompasses more than 1.8 million people and approximately 700,000 jobs.
In October 2015, local politicians and business leaders secured an in-principle deal with the Chancellor to transfer national powers and control over funding from national Government to the Sheffield City Region
