The deal - including a "Metro Mayor" - would see the region take over decisions on areas like transport and housing from central Government.

The amount of investment per year the deal would bring the West.

It would bring £30 million a year in investment.

North Somerset Council earlier voted against the move.

South Gloucestershire Council took longer to make its mind up as a number of councillors wanted to defer the decision until the country's situation is more certain following the EU Referendum.
