EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

COUNCIL

12TH SEPTEMBER  2018

 

 

SWANSEA BAY CITY REGION JOINT SCRUTINY COMMITTEE - MEMBERSHIP

 

 

Council at its meeting on the 13th June 2018 (Minute 8.3 refers) adopted the recommendation of the Executive Board that the establishment of the Swansea Bay City Deal Joint Scrutiny Committee be endorsed.

 

The 3 members  nominated by each Council should be  an elected member of that Council but not be a member of that Council’s executive and not be a member of the Joint Committee.

 

At that meeting an assurance was sought, that Carmarthenshire’s representations on the Joint Committee would be politically balanced, the Chief Executive has therefore contacted the Leaders of the 3 political groups to seek their nominations and these will be put forward, for endorsement, at the Council meeting.
