12. Money.

Chesterfield Borough Council think they will be able to get more inward investment that way. On the other hand, Derbyshire County Council would stand to lose a lot of income from the "Northern Powerhouse" stuff.

The 2 districts inbetween Chesterfield and South Yorkshire (Bolsover and North East Derbyshire) are both opposed to joining for a number of reasons. Not least of which is that the proposals are unpopular in Derbyshire. And as it happens it's Tory leaning voters who are most opposed to becoming part of what they consider "The Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire".

It's quite possible that a proposed referendum on the subject would do nothing whatsoever to resolve the current deadlock. But I can see why the local Tories would like this as a bit of a publicity stunt.
