Bridgend Public Services Board
Bridgend Public Services Board (PSB) was established on 1 April 2016 and brings together public bodies, who deliver services locally to improve the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Bridgend by setting objectives that will achieve the well-being goals outlined in the Wellbeing of Future Generations 2015 Wales Act.
The PSB does this by:
- Assessing the state of economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being in the area
- Setting objectives that are designed to maximise the PSBs contribution to the well-being goals.
They must do this in accordance with the sustainable development principle which means the PSB needs to make sure that when making decisions they take into account the impact they could have on people living their lives in Wales in the future.
The must prepare and publish a plan setting out its objectives and the steps it will take to meet them. This is called a Local Well-being Plan, it must say:
- Why the PSB feels their objectives will contribute within their local area to achieving the well-being goals, and
- How the PSB has taken into account the Assessment of Local Well-being in setting its objectives and steps to take.
