A Joint Scrutiny Committee has been established for the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership comprised of a nominated representatives from each of Lancashire’s local councils.

LEP Scrutiny provides locally elected members, the opportunity to scrutinise the work of LEPs on behalf of the area’s constituents.  The principal purpose of Scrutiny is to influence the policies and decisions made in relation to the delivery of services undertaken using public funding, in this case by LEPs.  A scrutiny committee should gather evidence on issues affecting local people and make recommendations to the LEP based on its findings. A scrutiny process provides an opportunity to investigate any issue which affects the local area or the area’s inhabitants.

The new Joint Scrutiny Committee will meet for the first time on Wednesday 24 March 2021, between 2pm and 4pm.
