Good governance is central to what we do
Openness and transparency is at the heart of decision-making at South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority and Local Enterprise Partnership.
We are committed to ensuring that the Mayoral Combined Authority meetings are open to members of the public and are webcast for people who are unable to travel to the meeting in person. You can also access meeting reports and minutes from all our committee meetings on our Committees and Meetings website.
Elected Members from our constituent (Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham) and non-constituent (Derbyshire Dales, North East Derbyshire, Chesterfield, Bassetlaw and Bolsover) authorities and Private Sector Leaders sit on our decision-making committees.
