Creating a fairer, stronger, cleaner Liverpool City Region – where no one is left behind
The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority is led by Mayor Steve Rotheram and brings together the region's six local authorities – Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral – to tackle the big issues that matter to us all, together.
Our aim is to ensure that everyone benefits from the decisions we make. We want to create an environment that allows our economy to thrive for the good of your community, and everyone who lives and works in the Liverpool City Region.
Our devolution deal with the government means that we are taking control of the important decisions that matter to our city region locally, instead of them being taken in London. This means that we can take decisions and invest our public money in the things that will bring the biggest benefits to you and your community. We're investing to create jobs and provide the skills our residents need, to improve our public transport and environment, build homes and tackle homelessness - making the Liverpool City Region the best possible place to live, work, play and grow old.
On top of our £900 million devolution deal, the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has secured more than a billion pounds in extra funding from the government. We're delivering real benefits, for real people, right now...
Investment in our new, publicly owned trains
Working closely together across our six local councils means that we can benefit all our communities and make our city region somewhere we can all be proud of.
Steve Rotheram was elected as the first Mayor of the Liverpool City Region on 5 May 2017 with 59% of the vote. The Mayor leads the Combined Authority in its work to drive prosperity, encourage innovation and expand opportunities for local people and communities in every part of our city region.
