Welcome to the latest newsletter from the Heart of the South West
Devolution Programme Management Office. Please share this newsletter with
colleagues and in your own communications.
This will be the last update until the New Year, when more detail
on targets will be produced and the evidence base developed further.
It has only been four months since we had our first meeting to
discuss the opportunities of devolution. In the short time since then we have
created a vibrant partnership, submitted a statement of intent to the Government, and developed a vision for the Heart of the South West that can
really make a difference for our area. We should be proud of our achievements
so far and look to 2016 as the year that we get our deal agreed and start
delivering it for the benefit of our 1.7 million residents. We hope you have a
relaxing and enjoyable festive season.
