The Combined Authority is committed to openness and transparency.

The decision-making process

The West of England Combined Authority Committee and the West of England Joint Committee are responsible for making the region’s key decisions. The two committees meet in public four times a year and decisions are put to a vote.

We publish a forward plan that details all of these decisions and when they will be taken. Once agreed, we publish all decisions by the Combined Authority’s decision-making bodies and its officers.

The Overview & Scrutiny Committee review these decisions and hold the Combined Authority and West of England Mayor to account.

The Combined Authority is committed to openness and transparency. Our committee meetings are open for the public to observe (subject to venue capacity).

We publish agenda on our website at least five working days before each meeting. Members of the public can submit written questions and statements in advance of committee meetings.
