What we do
Both the GMCA and AGMA Executive Board Constitutions has the power to establish joint committees, committees, strategic commissions and agencies. These are designed to discharge the functions of the GMCA and AGMA Executive Board in respect of particular areas of work.
Currently in operation we have:
- Greater Manchester Low Carbon Hub (formerly the Environment Commission)
- Greater Manchester Interim Health and Wellbeing Board (formerly the Health Commission)
- Planning & Housing Commission
- Transport for Greater
Committee Manchester Family / Centres of Excellence Manchester
The leadership for the above is made up of a mixture of elected members and representatives from other partners, including the private sector, other public sector agencies and the voluntary sector.
The representatives are not there to represent specific geographical areas, political groups or sectoral interests, but to perform a role for the city region as a whole; and are appointed based on skills and experience. Consequently, the intention is that not every local authority will have a representative on each of the above although some such as Improvement and Efficiency do.
Meeting papers for the public meetings can be viewed/downloaded from the calendar. Papers are normally available a week before the meeting date.
