  • Enabling inclusive growth: Enabling as many people as possible to contribute to, and benefit from, economic growth in our communities and towns. 
  • Tackling the climate emergency: Growing our economy whilst cutting emissions and caring for our environment.
  • Delivering 21st century transport: Creating efficient transport infrastructure to connect our communities, making it easier to get to work, do business and connect with each other. 
  • Securing money and powers: Empowering the region by negotiating a devolution deal and successfully bidding for substantial additional funds.
