Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee – 14th July 2015

The County Council has four overview and scrutiny committees (OSC) which review and scrutinise the provision of public services in Warwickshire. Three of the four committees will meet during next week. The first of these is the Communities OSC, which will meet at Shire Hall in Warwick at 2pm on 14th July. This Committee has a broad remit covering Fire & Rescue, Community Safety, Trading Standards, Transport and Highways, Economic Development and Environment, Adult Learning, Libraries, Heritage, and Tourism.

The Committee will discuss proposed review topics for the year ahead, both for items at the Committee and focussed review work through ‘task and finish’ groups. The agenda includes an update on Safer Routes to Schools. Last year, a task and finish group made recommendations, which were approved by the Cabinet on criteria for funding safety schemes both on the routes to schools and in the immediate vicinity of the schools. This report will also show the impact of speed activated safety signage on motorists, with the outcome of trials at Burton Green. 

The Committee will review the One Organisational Plan End of Year Performance Report and receive its regular update on the work of the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership. Further details for the meeting can be obtained by clicking this Link.
