Rolls-Royce profits

Rolls-Royce, like a number of international companies, uses

Combined council plan 'in jeopardy'

Chris Doidge

BBC Radio Derby political reporter

Plans for a combined authority would see the ten councils of Derby and Derbyshire pooling their powers - and potentially be given more money from government as a result.

But last night, Erewash Borough Council, which has a Conservative majority, voted against the idea claiming it was being "rushed".

The government insists

Combined Authorities are made up of all of the councils in an area - meaning Erewash's "No" vote is likely to put the entire scheme in jeopardy, for now at least.
