To consider Item 10
14 Cabinet Advisory Group on Devolution and Regional Working
The Council is involved in a number of projects that are potentially very significant for the future of regional partnership working on economic development, transport and related issues. These projects are also considering the opportunities presented by the Government’s devolution agenda. The two principal projects are:

(a) South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) on devolution; and

(b) Strategic Transport and Infrastructure Forum (Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire plus Milton Keynes and the three Bedfordshire Unitary Councils)

Representation on these projects is via the Cabinet. Given the long-term and strategic importance of these projects it is important to ensure cross-party engagement and understanding. A Cabinet Advisory Group is therefore suggested to advise on the Council’s engagement in relevant projects and, in particular, discuss and comment on papers and propositions that are developed in partnership settings.

It is recommended that a Cabinet Advisory Group on Devolution and Regional Working be established with a 2:2:2 representation.

Contact Officer: Geoff Snelson (Director of Strategy)
