How we make decisions

Glasgow City Region brings together leaders from across the public, private and third sectors, local and national government to drive economic growth and create a better place and life opportunities for our 1,800,000 residents.

The Glasgow City Region Cabinet is the ultimate decision-making body, responsible for a programme of work to grow and protect the Regional economy and for decision making in relation to the delivery of our £1.13 billion City Deal.
The Cabinet was formally established in 2014, under Section 57 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 and is made up of the Leaders of the eight member authorities.

Meetings take place every eight weeks and provide an opportunity to learn about our progress. They are open to the public, with dates, papers and the minutes of each meeting available here.

The Cabinet is supported by a Programme Management Office (PMO) which is also the central point for appraisal and monitoring of all aspects of City Deal. A Chief Executives’ Group (CEG oversees the management of the PMO, and its delivery of the operational functions of the Cabinet.
