Devolution

Cornwall Council is committed to the principles of Localism and Devolution


Cornwall Council is committed to delivering double devolution; transferring powers from London to Cornwall and to local communities and citizens.

Cornwall is the first rural authority to agree a Devolution Deal with the Government. The Cornwall Devolution Deal outlines the powers that will be devolved to Cornwall for transport, energy, health and social care, and heritage.

As well as having powers devolved to Cornwall from London, Cornwall Council is also devolving services and assets to local councils, groups and organisations within Cornwall.
