Parliament made that decision during the passage of the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009. The Act requires the same process to be followed to make a change to an existing combined authority as for establishing a new combined authority. This includes approval to the Order by each House of Parliament through affirmative resolution.
