Annal Nayyar reports on efficiency project where Seven councils agree to create combined authority

Seven local authorities in the North East have agreed to establish a combined authority for the region, following simultaneous cabinet meetings yesterday.

The ‘LA7’ group of councils, including Durham Council, Newcastle City Council and Gateshead MBC will now submit their proposal to communities secretary, Eric Pickles, for the creation of a North East Leadership Board as a combined authority.

The combined authority will focus on skills, transport and inward investment
