The board considered a report setting out the findings of a scrutiny review undertaken to determine the effectiveness of Transport Delivery Committee in ensuring that the transport policies of the WMCA positively contributed towards the delivery of its wider corporate objectives.
Councillor Cathy Bayton reported that the scrutiny review had gathered written and verbal evidence from a number of key stakeholders, including the Portfolio Lead for Transport, Chair of Transport Delivery Committee and the Managing Director of Transport for West Midlands. It proposed a number of recommendations to strengthen the co-ordination of transport policy between the WMCA and its constituent authorities, improving transport scrutiny arrangements and strengthening Transport Delivery Committee.
Councillor Ian Ward thanked Councillor Cathy Bayton for the way in which the scrutiny review was carried out and the opportunity she provided for him to input into the evidence it considered.
