Therese is backing Suffolk’s bid for a County Deal from government – devolving powers and resources to local communities - to improve lives and to boost economic growth. The bid to become a pilot area ahead of Levelling Up White Paper has the potential to deliver a large number of additional resources to our county.
Therese said: "Our rurality, coastal communities, market towns and larger urban centres makes Suffolk the perfect place to help government demonstrate how levelling up can work in diverse geographies. I’m delighted that Suffolk County Council’s bid, submitted earlier this week, has the backing of all the District and Borough Councils in our County as well as the Police and Crime Commissioner."
"I’ll also be lobbying Local Government Ministers, urging them to select Suffolk."
