The Joint Committee is the
decision-making body for issues relating to the West of England
Combined Authority, Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North
Somerset and South Gloucestershire councils, and the West of
England Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
Please note –
from January 2020 onwards, the West of England Joint
Committee usually meets jointly with the West of England Combined
Authority Committee – this joint meeting is the main WECA
member decision-taking meeting.
Prior to January 2020, the WECA Committee and the Joint Committee
met separately on the same day. To
streamline arrangements and to enable more efficient meetings,
Mayors and Leaders agreed in January 2020 that the WECA Committee
and the Joint Committee should in future meet
together at a joint meeting.
This enables, for example, all reports to be published as one,
unified agenda and means that one public forum session can take
place near the start of the meeting.
The two committees are separate bodies in legal terms but now
papers from January 2020 onwards, please refer to papers listed
under: Joint meeting – West of England Combined Authority
Committee and West of England Joint Committee
