DLR PPN Representatives
Members of DLR PPN can elect other members to act as representatives of the PPN on different local government committees.
The role of these representatives is to to represent the issues of DLR PPN members on a particular Board or Committee and to bring forward these issues to the committee for their consideration. DLR PPN representatives can also put items on the agenda of the committee.
DLR PPN representatives are not at committee meetings just to represent their own group or agenda. They must represent the varied views of those DLR PPN members who have an interest in the areas covered by the committee.
PPN Representatives are informed of the views of PPN member organisations through Linkage Groups.
Committees and their DLR PPN Representatives
A Linkage Group is a collection of PPN members who are stakeholders or have a particular interest or expertise in the issues being discussed by local authority committees.
Linkage Groups discuss and debate the matters being discussed by a local authority committee to inform the PPN Representatives of their views, and where relevant to prioritise and develop policy positions.
PPN Representatives report back to the Linkage Groups about the work of the committees and pass on information received at the committee meetings.
