The North Kent MAA – is Government brave enough?

I attended the North Kent Leaders’ Group meeting tonight to discuss the MAA, or multi-area agreement.

There’s a really good working relationship around the table, with officers and politicians from Gravesham, Swale and Dartford Borough Councils, Medway Council and Kent County Council.

The MAA is a chance for us to ask Government for specific freedoms to enable us to deliver a new set of outcomes – if only Government can be brave enough.

Already, the date for signing the agreements has been put off and put off. I can only hope the same Government Ministers are still there when we do sign.
