Meetings and decision making

Board decisions, for example the agreement of the assessment of local well-being and the local well-being plan, are only valid when made jointly and unanimously by all statutory members and with all statutory members in attendance.

In the event of a disagreement between statutory members it is the responsibility of the chair to mediate an agreement and to ensure that this is presented to the next available meeting of the Board or to a special meeting if required.

The quorum of a public services board meeting is all of its four statutory members.

The Board will hold a "mandatory meeting" chaired by the City and County of Swansea, no later than 60 days after each subsequent ordinary election of councillors.

The statutory members will appoint a chair and vice chair at the mandatory meeting from the statutory members of the invited participants. 

Membership, including the chair and vice chair will be reviewed annually following the mandatory meeting.

At this meeting the Board will:

  • Determine when and how often it meets.
  • Review and agree its terms of reference

Ordinary meetings of the Board will take place, as a minimum, every two calendar months at a time and venue to be agreed by the members.

Each meeting will consider, but not be limited to, the following agenda items:

  • Welcome and apologies
  • Declarations of interest
  • Public questions
  • Minutes of the last meeting
  • Progress on well-being objectives
  • Forward workplan

Meetings of the Board are open to members of the public to observe and to ask questions about any substantive agenda item.
