On Thursday 4 May an historic election will be taking place for the first ever West of England Mayor.
The new West of England Mayor will put into place almost £1billion pounds worth of funding provided by central Government over a 30-year period.
It will give the West of England Combined Authority more power in decision-making, especially around investment in transport, housing and adult education across the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Bath and North East Somerset councils.
