Chancellor George Osborne has announced that the Sheffield city region which includes South Yorkshire and parts of North Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire will have an elected mayor as part of a big money devolution deal.
If all goes as he hopes, from 2017 the area will vote for a directly-elected Mayor who will oversee a range of powers including transport budgets and planning.
Crucially it will give the area access to almost a billion pounds of Government money.
