The size of the prize of devolution for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire has been set out publicly in detail for the first time, as the regions draft deal is published on Tuesday 5 January 2016.
The deal document, which sets out the final negotiating position of the Council and business leaders behind the bid, was sent to Chancellor George Osborne and Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Greg Clark just before Christmas.
