Statement on latest Tees Valley Combined Authority developments (TVU area)

0 B document in "Documents".

Representatives from Tees Valley Lib Dem local parties met in Middlesbrough on 22nd March to discuss the proposal for a Tees Valley Combined Authority.
Briefed by Lib Dem councillors Julia Cherrett (Stockton), Anne Marie Curry (Darlington), and Josh Mason (Redcar), Lib Dems were unanimous in their support in principle for the move and expressed support for the potential to build on the success of Tees Valley Unlimited.
Ian Jones, chair of Middlesbrough & East Cleveland Lib Dems said:
"It's a real opportunity for devolution to work to secure a better future for the whole area provided it is inclusive and well-scrutinised. We are committed to working with emerging structures, but will press for greater democratic accountability and representation. We encourage Labour councillors to work in the interests of all rather than continue to protect their vested interest in maintaining a virtual one party state.
"The future of the Tees Valley rests on how well we now work together across local government with the corporate sector and other partners to provide economic growth, tackle the skills deficit, and unleash the talent at the heart of our community"
