Mayoral Combined Authority Board, 2024

The forward plan has been prepared in accordance with The Combined Authorities (Overview and Scrutiny Committees Access to Information and Audit Committees) Order 2017 ('the Order') and will be published at least 28 days before the key decision is to be made. The plan is reviewed monthly.

As well as being published on the Combined Authority's website and the Forward Plan will be available at South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority's offices.

Please note that the decision dates listed are indicative and may be subject to change.

Exempt information need not be included in the Forward Plan and confidential information cannot be included. There may be times when a decision has not been published in the forward plan 28 days in advance, this is usually because the matter is urgent, and a decision has had to be made quickly. These decisions can still be made but are subject to the regulations within 'the Order'.

What is a Key Decision?

The 2017 Order defines a key decision as a decision, which in the view of the Combined Authority's Overview and Scrutiny Committee is likely:

(i) To result in the Combined Authority or the Mayor to incur expenditure or savings of £1m, having regard to the Combined Authority’s budget for the service or function to which the decision relates; or

(ii) To be significant in terms of its effects on persons living or working in an area comprising two or more wards or electoral divisions in the area of the Combined Authority.

What is a Forward Plan?

The Forward Plan is a document that sets out information about ‘key decisions’ that the Combined Authority will make at meetings or people that may make them. The list includes all the key decisions we expect to take, and gives at least 28 days notice of them, in advance of the decision. By law, councils must publish these in a monthly Forward Plan. This provides the public with the opportunity to be aware of important matters which are coming up.

How do I find out more about the proposed decisions?

The documents and reports relating to the proposed decisions will be published on South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority website 5 working days prior to the decision being made (subject to confidentiality or restrictions on disclosure) or hard copies can be obtained by contacting South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority, 11 Broad Street West, Sheffield, S1 2BQ or email

If you require any further information or wish to make representations about any of the matters contained in the forward plan, please contact at least 7 days before the meeting. All officers can be contacted as set out in the plan.
