Nolan Tucker, Real Estate director at Deloitte in Yorkshire, commented: “The devolution deal announced for West Yorkshire and over £1bn in extra spending over a 30 year period will see the region take control of extra powers and funding from Westminster, under the leadership of a new Mayor. As part of the Government’s aim to re-balance the UK economy, the deal will provide an opportunity to leverage investment to address some of the region’s key challenges including transport, education, business and housing.”
