About the MCA Board
The South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority is a formal membership of councils.
Formed in 2014, the constituent members of the Mayoral Combined Authority are Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster councils. The councils of Bassetlaw, Chesterfield, North East Derbyshire, Derbyshire Dales and Bolsover are ‘non-constituent’ members.
The Mayoral Combined Authority shapes policy and leads on decision-making.
On 4 May 2018, Dan Jarvis was elected as the first Mayor of South Yorkshire and became Chair of the Mayoral Combined Authority.
Mayor Oliver Coppard was elected as the second Mayor of South Yorkshire on 5 May 2022 and became Chair of the Mayoral Combined Authority.
