Decision details

Decision Maker: WMCA Board

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Councillor Roger Lawrence presented a report on proposals to streamline the approvals process within the WMCA for the creation of bus partnership schemes in line with the delivery objectives of the West Midlands Bus Alliance.


Within the current terms of reference for the Transport Delivery Committee, it could specifically make recommendations to the WMCA Board on quality bus partnership schemes. It was now proposed that the committee could also approve the consultation and implementation of such schemes. This would help speed up the process to getting the necessary approvals required to make an order, whilst still ensuring that the Strategic Transport Officers Group, WMCA Programme Board and WMCA Board had visibility of the decisions made on Advanced Quality Bus Partnership Schemes.




(1)       The delegation of responsibility for the making of Advanced Quality Bus Partnership Schemes, including the oversight of any required consultation (statutory or otherwise) to the Transport Delivery Committee, and with the Transport Delivery Committee to have an ongoing responsibility to report its activity to the WMCA Board, be approved.


(2)       The terms of reference of the Transport Delivery Committee be amended to reflect the approved delegation.
