In the wake of government proposals to bring in super-sized funding streams to enhance partnerships across boundaries, the council is creating its version for an MAA to deliver the city region's housing and transport objectives.
'Neighbourhood issues are best dealt with at the lowest sensible level but infrastructure, housing and transport go beyond Sheffield's boundaries. MAAs are the delivery plan for part of our city region's ambitions.'
The council plans to have the MAA up and running from the next financial year.
The Local Government Association has said it will help councils get MAA trials under way.
