The election of the first mayor of a new York and North Yorkshire Combined Authority is set to cost £2.2m, a council report has revealed.

At a meeting on 22 January, a committee overseeing the formation of the new combined authority will consider its first budget, which covers a 15-month period from January 2024 to March 2025.

The combined authority will receive £540m of new government investment over 30 years to spend on local priorities and new devolved powers including in transport, housing, skills and digital connectivity, the budget report says.

Once elected on 2 May this year, the new mayor will also take on the functions of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire.

The region’s Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) board will transition into the combined authority’s business committee, with LEP staff integrated into the authority.
