Discussions are continuing over the shape of a potential devolution settlement for Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire – and we want to know what you think.

The government has proposed the establishment of a new combined authority covering the three counties, which would be headed by a new, directly-elected mayor.

Last week, during a visit to the region, communities secretary Greg Clark said the mayor was a condition of releasing more than £1 billion of funding that would come with the proposals.

But critics fear the new structure would take up too much of the additional funding in bureaucracy rather than having more cash being spent where it is most needed.

Today. we’re running an opinion poll on the question: “Do you support the idea of an elected mayor for Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire?”

Maybe you believe the new mayor is a price worth paying to secure vital infrastructure improvements. Or perhaps you feel it’s an unnecessary extra layer of government.
