The Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014 apply to various local government bodies, including Combined Authorities, and therefore:-
- Require a written record to be made of any decision that has been delegated to an officer of the NECA under a specific express authorisation, or under a general authorisation where the effect of the decision is to grant permissions or licences, affect the rights of individuals, award contracts or incur expenditure which materially affects the NECA’s financial position;
- Require that the written records are made available to the public at the NECA‘s office, on its website, by post if requested and on receipt of payment for copying and postage, and through any other means thought appropriate by the NECA;
- Require the written record to be available for public inspection for at least 6 years, and any supporting documentation for at least 4 years.
The Scheme of Delegation of Functions to Chief Officers (Part 3.6 of the NECA’s Constitution) sets out the decisions that such officers can make.
The relevant decisions made by officers are recorded in writing and published below. Should you require further information on any of the non-confidential decisions published, please submit your query via "Contact Us" at the top of this page.
