Barnsley Devolution Poll Approved

We are getting the chance to have our say on devolution in Barnsley.

The Council's given the go ahead to a community poll to be held next month.

The options are a wider Yorkshire deal or a Sheffield City Region deal, which just includes towns and cities in South Yorkshire.

Barnsley East MP Stephanie Peacock has welcomed the decision and says it's important to get the best deal for local people.

Once a deal is agreed, local leaders will have powers to make more decision here instead of in London and it could also see more money for the area.
