The Steering group will now have oversight of the development of the initiative.
It has responsibility for recommending the final Shortlist of Projects for the Public Vote to the Council for approval.
The membership of the Steering Group is made up of the Mayor and Elected Members on a cross-party, independent basis, agreed by the Council.
Where there are not two Elected Members from the Local Electoral Area in which an initiative is being run on the Steering Group, these may be co-opted onto the Steering Group for the duration of the local project.
The Steering Group is supported by senior members of the Executive.
Area in which the initiative is being run will be provided with update reports both on the progress of the initiative during the project submission and voting stages as well as on the progress made on the delivery of the successful projects.
