Say “Yes to Yorkshire”

In December 2017, Barnsley and  Doncaster are holding community polls and giving every voter the chance to have their say about devolution in our region.

Why? Because devolution is important. It is something that will affect residents like you, our children, our businesses and our boroughs for the next 30 years.

It means that more decisions about jobs, transport, housing, skills and training would be made here in Yorkshire instead of in London.

You’re being asked if you would prefer to be part of a wider Yorkshire devolution deal or a Sheffield City Region deal.

We’re saying “Yes to Yorkshire” because we believe it is the best option as the UK leaves the European Union.

Watch out for your voting papers and remember to have your say. You can vote by post or online and must return your ballot by 20th December.
