Scrutiny Panel

Given the increased Growth Board responsibilities for allocation of funding streams under the Deal, a Scrutiny Panel has been formed to ensure effective and coordinated scrutiny of the work and decision-making of the Growth Board. It’s membership comprises three councillors from each authority and it is empowered to review any decisions and make recommendations on reports to the Growth Board. This additional joint scrutiny function complements rather than replaces the existing Scrutiny Committees of each authority.
