Benefits of Becoming a Combined Authority?
A combined authority means that councils can work as one democratically accountable body around the key areas of economic development, regeneration and transport to:
- avoid duplication and provide more efficient services
- create a stronger basis for bidding for Government and EU money
- make best use of council and Government money
- speed up decision-making.
A combined authority could streamline services, be more transparent and efficient, and make it easier for Lancashire to attract investment and jobs.
