Transport for Greater Manchester Committee pdf icon PDF 253 KB

The report of the City Solicitor is attached.

Minutes:

The Committee considered the report of the City Solicitor which detailed that on 29 June 2018 the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) resolved that the Transport for Greater Manchester Committee (TfGMC) membership be reduced to 23 members, with the appointments to be made as follows:-

 

·         Each of the 10 Greater Manchester district councils shall:

o   appoint one member (save for Manchester City Council which shall appoint two members (based on population and therefore financial contribution to the levy);

o   nominate one member to be appointed to the TfGMC by the GMCA to ensure political balance;

·         The GMCA shall appoint one member;

·         The Mayor of Greater Manchester shall nominate one further member to be appointed to the TfGMC by the GMCA.

 

It further resolved that each of the Greater Manchester district councils be requested to agree the recommendations in the report.

 

The Committee were concerned that the structure of the appointments and nominations across the 10 District Council could potentially not lead to a political balance on the TfGMC and suggested that the GMCA provide clarification as to how this balance would be achieved.

 

Decisions

 

  1. To agree the recommendations in the report and to recommend that the Council endorse the changes to the size and structure of the TfGMC.

 

  1. To appoint two members to the TfGMC.

 

  1. To nominate one further member to be appointed to the TfGMC by the GMCA.
