Devolution: Council announces citywide consultation events

Residents of Hull will have the chance to give their views on the Hull and East Yorkshire devolution proposals in person after a series of consultation drop-in events have been announced.

The first event is taking place this Thursday, 18 January, with residents able to visit sessions all over Hull across January and February, where the council will be on hand to support them with information, answer any queries and assist with completing the consultation.

The in-person events are in addition to the consultation survey, which is available here.

The first of the series of events will be held at The Freedom Centre on Preston Road this Thursday from 10 am to noon, giving residents in the area the opportunity to have their say.

Cllr Mike Ross, Leader of Hull City Council, said: “We are pleased to announce such a large set of events to discuss the new proposed devolution deal and what it could bring to the city. 

“As part of being a listening council, we want everyone in Hull to have the chance to have their say on the new devolution proposals. The council is going to work hard to make sure residents’ views feel heard.

“I look forward to attending many of these events to discuss the new devolution proposals with local people to hear what they have to say on this big issue.”
