Scrutiny Committee

In relation to the Black Country Executive Joint Committee, each of the Black Country Local Authorities, within its own Scrutiny structure may choose to look into the performance of the Land and Property Investment Fund, Enterprise Zones, City Deal and Growth Deal - or any of the BC LEP’s activities or funding streams via any of the BC LEP’s Accountable Bodies - and its impact on that Scrutiny Committee’s Council, and report under the normal structure to its full Council and Cabinet on its findings.

This section contains details of Scrutiny Committee’s attended by BC LEP; to include Agenda, reports, minutes and presentations.

Overview and Scrutiny Committees are made up of non-executive members (i.e. those not on cabinet) from across all political parties and they exist to provide accountability to the council. They have four key roles:

  • Holding the Executive to account for their decisions;
  • Scrutinising local partners (e.g. Local Enterprise Partnerships);
  • Reviewing and developing policies and making recommendations to council on these; and
  • Carrying out service reviews to ensure services are providing value for money and meeting local needs.

Scrutiny has a vital role in enabling the voice of local residents through community engagement. All meetings are open to the public to attend (except in exceptional circumstances where something has to be taken in private session) and the public can also suggest items for scrutiny panels to consider.
