London TravelWatch scheme of policy delegation

The Board of London TravelWatch is appointed by the London Assembly to give strategic direction to the organisation in its work speaking up for London Transport Users. In particular, it is the Board which agrees what stance should be taken in respect of key transport policy and operational matters.  The Board makes these decisions in public.

The Board’s agreed perspectives are consolidated into a scheme of delegation which is used to guide the day to day work of the Secretariat.

During 2014, a systematic review took place of the scheme of delegation from the Board to officers of London TravelWatch and a revised scheme was developed in accordance with members’ wishes.
