Revised guidance: Overview and Scrutiny in Combined Authorities

Posted on 26/02/2021 by Kate Grigg.

This is our second edition of the guide to overview and scrutiny in Combined Authorities (CAs).

When the first edition of this guide was published, CAs – and the overview and scrutiny systems designed to form a part of their governance framework – were yet to be tested in practice. This new edition has provided an opportunity for us to reflect on the three and a half years of practice since their introduction.

It provides officers and members with a comprehensive but straightforward guide to the legislation as it relates to scrutiny in CA areas, and how scrutiny can best operate in practice.
