Doncaster Chamber comments on South Yorkshire devolution dealJanuary 16, 2020Commenting on the South Yorkshire devolution deal, Dan Fell, Chief Executive at Doncaster Chamber, said:
“Securing a South Yorkshire devolution deal is a positive step for Doncaster and the region.
“Whilst the Chamber – led by member sentiment – has, and continues to advocate for, full Yorkshire devolution, Doncaster businesses have always been extremely pragmatic about how this is achieved and the need to take iterative steps in pursuit of the ultimate prize.
“This compelling deal is, however, much more than just a stepping stone and could be a welcome fillip to an economy which, for the last couple of years, has been beset by uncertainty. The Chamber congratulate all who have shown determination and pragmatism to get this across the line at a crucial time for the economy.
“We would urge all involved in the implementation and delivery of the deal to be highly ambitious in their plans. To this end, it is absolutely imperative that the private sector is fully engaged in shaping future plans for the region. This will ensure that the money reaches the parts it needs to and helps to maximise opportunities across a range of sectors and issues and in all parts of South Yorkshire.”
