Have your say on the West Midlands Combined Authority
The emerging West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is consulting on its proposed role and functions.
A survey can be found on the WMCA website - www.WestMidlandsCombinedAuthority.org.uk- from Monday 18 January until 8 February 2016 and people are encouraged to take part and leave feedback.
The survey into the ‘Scheme’ document, which was submitted to ministers in October, will help inform the government’s decision on whether it is appropriate and in the region’s best interests to formally establish a Combined Authority (WMCA) ahead of Parliament being asked to approve it.
