SELEP - Revised Governance Arrangements
Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: No
The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Legal and Democratic Services) proposing revisions to the governance arrangements of the SELEP in the light of the central government requirement for Local Enterprise Partnerships to set up a company.
Reasons for Decision
All Local Enterprise Partnerships are now required by central government to set up a company.
To have the new company employing the secretariat and receiving and distributing the funding – but this would involve a lot of legal and financial structures and the consensus is that the costs and bureaucracy involved in this outweighs the benefits.
