Governance

Mid Wales partners have invested significant time and effort in ensuring the appropriate governance and management arrangements are in place to deliver the Growth Deal from the outset. This includes the signing of an Inter-Authority Agreement between Powys and Ceredigion County Councils, alongside clear governance and management arrangements to bring forward a Heads of Terms.

A secondary inter-authority agreement (governance agreement) will be developed as we near Heads of Terms to ensure we continue to evolve and develop these arrangements to meet the needs of the Growth Deal for the delivery phase.
