MENU Unleashing Yorkshire’s Potential Through Devolution

Why Subsidiarity

Devolution is defined: “The transfer or delegation of power to a lower level”.  In the true spirit of devolution, we believe that the transfer or delegation of power should not end at regional level from central government but should continue from regional level to sub-regional level and from sub-regional level onwards so that appropriate powers are enjoyed at each appropriate level.  This will allow the level with the best appreciation of an issue to make decisions in respect of it without having to refer to a higher level which has a lesser appreciation of the issue and has issues relating to its own level to consider.  This subsidiarity will inspire people by empowering them and we believe it will culminate in better decisions being made more quickly to deliver the most benefit and fastest progress to everyone throughout Yorkshire.
