The North of Tyne Cabinet is the decision-making body of the authority, with wide-ranging powers and responsibilities over economic growth, skills, housing policy and enhancing the places and communities in our region. It aims to drive economic growth and job creation, invest in digital skills and science and support rural growth.
Cabinet Members lead specific portfolios and give collective strategic direction and oversight of our work. Cabinet is made up of representatives from Newcastle City Council, North Tyneside Council and Northumberland County Council, it is led by our Mayor and Deputy Mayor.
Ensuring that local priorities are reflected, we maximise the connection between our urban, rural and coastal geographies and our unique local assets and strengths.
The Mayor chairs the Cabinet, provides oversight of the programme, and plays a key role engaging with citizens, businesses, voluntary sector partners and with Government.
All are supported by an executive team built on close partnership between NTCA and constituent Local Authority officers.
