Programme Management Group

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

plus 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 is being held on 12 September 2019 at Rushmoor Borough Council, Farnborough.

PMG meeting papers can be found in the resources section.  Archive Minutes of PMG meetings are available by clicking on the relevant year - 2018 and 2019.
