In May 2024 North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) will be absorbed into a new, North East Combined Authority.

As the first and only term of the NTCA comes to an end, it is right that we take a moment to pause and reflect on what has been achieved.  In those five years we have taken a collaborative approach towards solving the problems our communities face.

Our Top Achievements 5377+ new jobs in the pipeline for growing £126m invested in projects to enable growth and innovation 115 000 courses for people to get good jobs Supported 569 businesses to go digital Pledged support to 62 community projects through North of Tyne Crowdfunding Unlocking space for 2023 new homes across the region Attracted 1.8m visitors to events and festivals

We have worked in partnership, creating connections between programmes and projects, developing an inclusive approach to investing in our region. Devolution has given us the chance to make our own decisions about our future, so we targeted investment where we knew it was most needed, making a strong connection between economic growth and providing people with the skills, education and confidence to benefit from every opportunity.

Our vision is of a dynamic and more inclusive economy, one that brings together people and opportunities to create vibrant communities and a high quality of life, narrowing inequalities and ensuring that all residents have a stake in our region’s future.
