A shared service delivering Environmental Health, Licensing and Trading Standards across Bracknell Forest, West Berkshire and Wokingham Borough Councils

Governance and accountability

How the Public Protection Partnership is governed

A defining feature of the Public Protection Partnership Service is the open and transparent way each of the Partners comes together to make decisions, understands the complexities of the functions being delivered and appreciates the rationale for service priorities.

There are three distinct layers of governance allowing for a good balance between flexibility and oversight, encouraging discussions between officers and members and keeping a firm set of priorities at the heart of everything we do:

  • Joint Public Protection Committee
  • Joint Management Board
  • Joint Management Team

Information regarding the Joint Public Protection Committee is managed through the West Berkshire Council Committee Services Team. The Forward Plan for the Public Protection Partnership (including work relating to the individual Licensing Committees) can be found below.
