SWLEP has a business led board, chaired by John Mortimer, South West Director of the Country Land & Business Association (CLA), and a small core team headed by Director, Paddy Bradley, to coordinate delivery across of our Skills and Talent, Transport,
Digital Capability, Place Shaping and Business Development projects.
We publish Register of Interests for all Board Members, Advisers, Observers and SWLEP Team Members who provide advice in the decision making of SWLEP. These are available through the biographies here.
The Swindon & Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SWLEP) is committed to being as transparent as possible about what we do, holding our Board Meetings in public and making all key policies and procedures available.
We welcome attendance by the public at our meetings and participation, including the opportunity to ask questions. Anyone wishing to submit questions to the SWLEP Board should do so in writing five days prior to the Board meeting via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Where the nature of the business of a Board meeting is deemed confidential, the public will be excluded from the relevant parts of the meeting as outlined in Appendix C of our Assurance Framework.
Our work is scrutinised by the Joint Scrutiny Task Group, which has a fixed membership of equal numbers from Swindon Borough Council and Wiltshire Council.
Agenda and papers for the Board will be published on the SWLEP website a minimum of five clear working days prior to
the relevant meeting unless there is an extraordinary meeting called with less than five days notice.
Minutes of Board Meetings will be published no later than ten clear working days after the relevant meeting and will be published in draft if they have not been finalised. Final minutes will be published within ten clear working days of being approved.
Board members must declare any such conflicts or potential conflicts prior to the start of discussion on the relevant agenda item, and any declaration of interest will be included in the minutes of the Board meeting and the on the relevant member’s
register of interest. Such declarations shall be considered and actioned in accordance with the Section C: Conflicts of Interest of our Governance Framework.
