  • West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) brings together Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds, Wakefield and York councils and the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) as a united force for economic growth.

    WYCA works with private and public sector partners to raise the quality of life in our region through businesses growth, job creation, a trained and skilled workforce and the building of new and affordable homes, underpinned by a modern, integrated transport network.

    Since April 2014 West Yorkshire Combined Authority and the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership’s successes have included:

    • secured a £1billion-plus Growth Deal to support growing businesses, develop a skilled and prosperous workforce, improve energy efficiency and create the housing and transport infrastructure for growth.

    • agreed a first-stage devolution deal giving us greater influence over investment decisions on skills, transport, housing and support for small businesses.

    • worked closely with the LEP, which has created an additional 3,200 jobs for local people, unlocked around £491 million of private sector investment in the region, supported over 4,000 businesses and, with its partners, will add an extra £1.4 billion to the City Region economic output by 2020.

    • opened the new Apperley Bridge station and new Leeds Station Southern Entrance and working with partners to build the new Kirkstall Forge station.

    • started a £1bn programme of 26 transformational transport investments that will support and maximise economic and employment growth over the next 10 years.
