The Committee will comprise FIVE Elected Members and ONE Citizen representative from each of the three local authorities in its area (Bridgend, Merthyr and Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Councils), as well as co-opted non-executive members from other statutory partner organisations e.g. Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service and Natural Resources Wales.  It is anticipated that the Committee will meet hybrid in a central location / remotely via Zoom and all Members will receive training following appointment.
