Scrutiny In-Year Requests

Decision Maker: Scrutiny Management Board

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Purpose:

Request from the Environment, Economic Growth and Transport Scrutiny Committee.

Decisions:

Members were presented with an in-year request from the Environment, Economic Growth and Transport Scrutiny Committee to convene an inquiry day on the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership (LRSP).

 

The Board was informed that the report presented to the Environment, Economic Growth and Transport Scrutiny Committee at its meeting on 25 January 2024 highlighted that the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership was not and had never been responsible for road safety. In pursuing this point further, it was felt the committee could not ascertain the current or intended role of the partnership whilst the matter was in a state of transition. The committee was therefore not satisfied and felt that an inquiry day be convened to scrutinise all the partners, review the changes and make recommendations on the future direction of the partnership. It was acknowledged that the timing of the report to the committee might not have coincided with the completion of the review.

 

Members requested that the list of partners who currently made up the partnership be circulated after the meeting.

 

Resolved: That the in-year request for the Environment, Economic Growth and Transport Scrutiny Committee to convene an inquiry day on the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership be agreed.
