Pathways to devolution
The Levelling up White Paper establishes a new three-tier framework for devolution, with the offer of devolution for any area of England that wants it. Alongside the framework is a promise of greater autonomy and improved funding arrangements for those areas willing to go furthest with their devolution deals.

As in other national change initiatives, the framework leaves it to local decision makers to determine what will work for their places and regions. This means that the onus is now on local government leaders and their teams to explore the ‘right’ option for their area, and to engage with other authorities, organisations and communities in their areas and regions to shape their future arrangements.
In this session:
- look at how the rules are changing, and the opportunities and challenges these changes present;
- consider how these can effectively be explored within your organisation, and with your partners, in order to develop a strategy which best meets your organisational goals and delivers the outcomes you want; and
- review the route-map to get you to your chosen destination, and the steps you can take now, regardless of your progress to date.
