Meetings of the LEP Board and its decision making committees are held in public. Meeting dates are published well in advance and agendas and papers are published five working days before meetings. Minutes of meetings are published within five working days of meetings. Decisions on financial and other key issues can only be taken in full Board or committee meetings. The CWLEP commits to the following timescales:
- Meeting agendas and papers will be published 5 clear working days before the meeting takes place;
- Minutes of Board meetings will be published within 10 clear working days of the meeting taking place. These may be in draft until the LEP has been through the necessary processes to finalise the minutes. The final minutes of Board and committee meetings will be published within 10 clear working days of being approved.
Members of the public are welcome to attend any of the board or sub-committee meetings. The dates of all the meetings are detailed here.
If you would like to attend a meeting please contact the relevant person 7 days before the meeting so we can make sure we have an appropriately sized room booked. The location of the meetings is usually Wyvern House, but please check with the relevant person in case it is being held elsewhere.

Redacting of commercially sensitive information
The LEP’s policy is to discuss commercially sensitive matters in Part Two of our meetings. Where this is going to happen, the agenda will state clearly that the meeting will be divided in to two parts and will give a short description of the area/s to be discussed. E.g. Loan to company x.
In the unlikely event that commercially sensitive matters are to be discussed within part 1 of a meeting as part of perhaps a wider agenda item, the item will be shown on the agenda but with the name of the company redacted if required. All commercially sensitive information included in any papers such as accounts, loan terms, due diligence information will either be redacted and that document then published on the website as a PDF or an entirely separate paper will be written and we will state on the LEP website that it has been written but that the information is confidential.
