The Sheffield City Region Mayor also praised the unity of those leaders for hitting back at the Government in the ongoing row over a One Yorkshire devolution deal. On Thursday, 18 of the region’s 20 council leaders and Mr Jarvis gave a defiant response to the claim by new Local Government Secretary James Brokenshire that he was currently “not prepared” to discuss One Yorkshire.
Yorkshire’s only elected Mayor Dan Jarvis has urged Ministers to hold “constructive” and “collaborative” talks about a region-wide devolution deal backed by almost all its civic leaders.
YORKSHIRE is a county made up of great towns and cities that punctuate a landscape of woodlands, rivers, hills, dales, reservoirs, moors and lakes.
It is this urban and rural mix that works together to create a place in which we’re proud to live, work and play.
It is also an environment that attracts national and international visitors alike.
As the Mayor for the Sheffield City Region, it is my responsibility to nurture these natural assets as well as growing an economy that creates prosperity for all.
