So this Devolution thingy?

We know from the previous Ipsos Mori public engagement with a cross section of the community in Suffolk, residents are clearly interested in finding out how devolution can deliver tangible long term economic growth, and improvements to transport and health within Suffolk and their immediate community.

The deal on the table for Suffolk and Norfolk is one of the best in the country.  It offers our communities significant opportunities for new job creation, with new housing development to support our growing economy and the money to invest in roads and infrastructure to connect our communities and businesses with the rest of the region and beyond.

As I said in my blog on Monday Ipsos Mori are conducting an extensive telephone survey but we also want to hear what everyone thinks and to hear from as many people as possible. But do the public agree?  So, yesterday as a part of the work being undertaken across Norfolk and Suffolk, saw me, standing outside Ipswich railway station handing out leaflets to busy commuters as they rushed for their train asking them to have a look at the web site and to fill in the questionnaire. Tonight, I will be at a Suffolk Association of Local Councils (SALC) meeting (that’s Parish and Town Councils to you and me) at Pakenham to discuss the deal, the Combined Authority and the Mayor and asking them to spread the word.

So please have a look at www.eastangliadevo.co.uk
