Committee details

Joint meeting - West of England Combined Authority Committee and West of England Joint Committee

Purpose of committee

This is a joint meeting of the West of England Combined Authority Committee and the West of England Joint Committee.

Please note since January 2020 onwards, this is the main member decision-taking meeting.  Prior to January 2020, the Combined Authority 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 Combined Authority 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.
