This detailed and comprehensive paper looks at every aspect of the English devolution process – from the initial scoping out of a proposal to Government, to the implementation of a deal on the ground.

At every stage there are important governance duties and responsibilities – securing buy-in from non-executive councillors and the public, working with partners, thinking about transparency and how, and when, bids and deals will be subject to robust scrutiny. This paper sets out how those duties and responsibilities might be transacted.
