Devolution - changes for Lincolnshire are approaching. In the 2016 budget, Chancellor George Osborne announced that plans for a Greater Lincolnshire will be going ahead. The bid is supported by ten local authorities listed below alongside other public bodies such as Lincolnshire Police and the Local Enterprise Partnership. This means that a paid Mayor will be elected in 2017 for Greater Lincolnshire. Essentially, Greater Lincolnshire will be given £15 million a year for the next thirty years for projects such as infrastructure, managing flood risks, roads etc. However this money may not go far for example by making the A15 safer for drivers, could easily eat away the full budget for the year. The elected Mayor will oversee a cabinet consisting of one representative from each authority. The local authorities involved are shown in the image above.
