Combined Authority Bid Officially Launched

 Caroline Spelman, MP for the Meriden Constituency, gives a cautious welcome the news of the intent for one of the most ambitious Combined Authority plans in the country.  It is hoped that the Combined Authority (encompassing 3 LEPS which could combine as many as 12 district councils or more) will leave businesses in the West Midlands in a stronger position, potentially creating an economic power tantamount to that of large trading areas such as London. 

Thank You!

General Election success in Solihull and Meriden!
