We regret to inform you that the Event on Devolution booked for the 4th April is postponed for the foreseeable future. This is because the Government have, subsequent to the Budget, issued an East Anglian Devolution Agreement attached which is essentially an offer to Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk but not Essex. While we are assured that Devolution is still of interest to Essex it pushes it down everyone’s agenda somewhat.
We have discussed this with ECC and they are happy to keep us informed of any future developments.
Essex CVS Network and the VCS Alliance are very aware of the pressures on your time and resources and have therefore elected to cancel the event. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Should you have something to say on the matter of devolution, there is a devolution Thread on the VCS Alliance Forum, or please do make contact with your local CVS who will be happy to discuss this further with you.
For more information about Devolution, please see the Greater Essex website.
