The Cardiff Capital Region Cabinet
The Cardiff Capital Region (CCR) comprises the ten local authorities in South East Wales, and the CCR Cabinet is made up of the Leader from each of those authorities. It is the ultimate decision-making body for the CCR City Deal, responsible for overseeing and coordinating the councils’ obligations in respect of the City Deal.
The main responsibilities of the CCR Cabinet include:
- managing the CCR Wider Investment Fund (decisions on projects and schemes to be funded are taken by the Regional Cabinet)
- overseeing the progress of the CCR City Deal and to give strategic direction,
- delivering the agreed CCR City Deal Strategic Business Plan
The plan specifies the regional strategic objectives of the CCR City Deal and key themes have been identified to focus the approach:
Skills and Employment,
Connecting the Region, and
Regeneration and Infrastructure.
- considering the scope for strengthening Capital Region governance further, subject to the agreement of the ten local authorities.
The maintenance and integrity of the Cardiff Capital Region City Deal website is the responsibility of the Office of the City Deal; the work carried out by auditors does not involve consideration of these matters and accordingly auditors accept no responsibility for any changes that may have occurred to the financial statements since they were initially presented on the website’.
