A new legislative framework for devolution has been introduced into
England marking a potentially significant step towards addressing the
unfinished business of Labour’s devolution settlement. What promised to
be a bespoke and bottom-up commitment to devolution for English local
government has manifested into a top-down, prescriptive and inconsistent
process of agreeing the decentralisation of functions and finances to
groups of principal local authorities. The paper reports on the
progress of the new wave of devolution in England to date, through a
review of agreed devolution deals and assesses the extent to which the
current ‘devolution revolution’ represents the beginning of a shift away
from a centralised system built from the bottom up, or looks set to
result in another typically top-down reform to local government. The
paper presents the initial findings of early research, which will be
used to develop key research questions for a further long-term research
