The Enterprise M3 Programme Management Group ( PMG) plays a key role in the ongoing management of Enterprise M3’s funding programmes. It is able to make decisions on Local Growth Fund projects which are seeking a contribution from Enterprise M3 of less than £3m. On other projects, the PMG plays a key role in providing advice to the Enterprise M3 Board.

The PMG comprises the following representatives:

  • 3 x Private Sector Enterprise M3 Board member (1 to chair)
  • 2 x Local Authority Member
  • 2 x Local Authority Senior Officer
  • 1 x Homes England representative
  • 1 x Accountable Body representative
  • 1 x LEP Director
  • 1 x LEP Chief Executive

There are also 2 x Local Authority Transport Lead Members and 1 x Private Sector Chairman of Enterprise M3 Transport Action Group for transport related items only.

The main focus of the PMG is around the Local Growth Fund and the Growing Enterprise Fund, although it will have oversight of all funding programmes held and influenced by Enterprise M3.  Responsibilities of the PMG include: approving projects seeking a contribution from Enterprise M3 of less than £3m, reviewing and making recommendations to the Board on the relative priority of proposals for funding; consideration of due diligence and Action Group advice on proposals, and recommending to the Board whether proposals over £3m should proceed to contracting; overseeing the development of an appropriate pipeline of proposals to be funded in future; and, making recommendations to the Board around the alignment of the funding programmes administered by the LEP.

The next Programme Management Group meeting has not yet been arranged.

Enterprise M3 are committed to publishing on its website a public notice of Programme Management Group and Board meetings and any sub-committee which involves decisions about public money, at least five clear working days before any meeting. Copies of the Agenda and any papers (save for confidential and exempt items) to be considered at a meeting of the Programme Management Group or Board will be open for inspection by the public at least five clear working days before any meeting, unless a matter is to be considered as a matter of urgency, in which case the item will be available for inspection as soon as it is added to the Agenda for the meeting. The same procedure applies if a meeting is held by teleconference between meetings to take urgent business

PMG meeting papers can be found in the related content section to the right of this page.  Archive Minutes of PMG meetings are available by clicking on the relevant year - 2018, 201920202021 and 2022.

Enterprise M3 seeks to place as much information as possible in the public domain, however due to the nature of the work there may be some papers which are not suitable for publication. The Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012 and Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 as amended will be used to determine whether documents should be exempt or classified. Our Confidential Items Policy gives further details of this process.
