Public consultation

In early 2023 an eight week public consultation took place to seek views

on how the deal would be implemented. Feedback saw respondents

welcome the proposed increase in regional power, a greater profile for the

North East, and closer working arrangements among key organisations. A

total of 3,235 individuals and organisations from across the region took

part in the consultation process. Participants were asked to consider five

key areas around the proposals, and in all instances, the majority of

respondents agreed with the plans.

These were governance of the proposed North East Mayoral Combined

Authority (61% agreed) as well as its plans around transport (67%),

housing and planning (60%) and, finance and investment (53%), and skills,

employment and adult education (65%).
