West of England Joint Committee
Purpose of committee
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 meet together.
For agenda 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
