THE Government’s Cabinet Office has begun the legal process to create a combined local authority for the North East.

The new body will represent all seven local authorities in the North East and oversee strategic issues including transport, skills, inward investment and spatial planning.

North East Chamber of Commerce chief executive James Ramsbotham said: “The North East business community recognises the importance of regional unity.

“As such, it is fantastic to learn that Cabinet Office has begun the process that will see the creation of a Combined Authority.”
