The West Midlands Combined Authority has a number of key priorities. These are economic growth, skills, transport and housing, as well as reforming public services and reducing the region's welfare bill. To ensure that these priorities are dealt with the emerging WMCA will establish three commissions; Land Commission, Mental Health Commission and Productivity Commission.
We have just launched our Annual Plan for 2017-18. This shows our strategic approach that will put the West Midlands in the vanguard of devolution for the year ahead.
