Coast to Capital is happy to participate in any local authority scrutiny panel it is invited to and holds an annual meeting of the Joint Committee which is responsible for ensuring the democratic accountability of the LEP to all local authorities within its area. To date, no requests have been made; however, all information about local authority scrutiny panels we take part in will be made available on our website.
We also commission an optional annual independent scrutiny report on an aspect of governance of Coast to Capital at the discretion of the Audit Committee. Our management response to these reports can be found in the related resources box to the right. We are currently undertaking an independent review of our risk management. We will be undertaking an independent review of our Backing Business Fund this financial year.
