Deal would be important step forward for region
Business and council leaders around the Humber have submitted a landmark proposal to Government that would accelerate the area's development as an offshore wind cluster.
The Humber is competing against 19 other areas for a City Deal, with not all guaranteed success.
Under the rules of the competition, the proposal had to be focused on a single economic growth issue and request the Government to grant a small number of freedoms or flexibilities – not additional funding.
The City Deal would be an important step forward for the development of the Humber, building on recent joint successes including the Humber Bridge tolls, the Enterprise Zones and the Regional Growth Fund.

The LEP and the local authorities have worked together on this very closely and very well over the last few months, and we will shortly have an opportunity to go further still when we begin our work with Lord Heseltine.
If successful, the local authorities and the LEP will have until October to negotiate the details of the proposals with Government departments.
