1 Information Pack for Applicants to the MIDLANDS CONNECT PROJECT TEAM I. Midlands Connect: Strategic Context and progress to date The Midlands Connect (MC) Partnership started in 2014 and brings together a Partnership of 28 Local Transport Authorities and 11 Local Enterprise Partnerships from across the Midlands (see Annex A) to promote transformational transport improvements to unlock the untapped economic potential of the region and help rebalance the UK economy as a whole. The Midlands Connect Partnership is underpinned by two main principles: a. Investing in the One Voice approach to ensure the Midlands reaches a unified position on what strategic transport interventions are required to maximise the growth potential of the area; and b. An evidenced approach through a number of technical studies which, in parallel with Network Rail s and Highway England s technical activities, will be focused on clearly articulating and evidencing the transport needs, opportunities and investment priorities for the region. So far the MC programme has been locally driven and locally funded and has been developed in close collaboration with Local Authorities, LEPs and the transport industry (Network Rail, Highways Agency, HS2 Ltd and transport operators). During 2015 the MC Partnership has gone from strength to strength with political and business leaders recognising the role of the Partnership as a catalyst for unprecedented collaboration and partnership working across the Midlands. The MC Partnership has already gained support from Sir David Higgins who acknowledges Midlands Connect as a key driver for ensuring that the Midlands is HS2 Ready and maximises the opportunities HS2 will bring. A significant achievement for the MC Partnership was securing 5m from Government to Midlands Connect as part of the summer budget, clearly showing Government s recognition of Midlands Connect as one of the key components of the Engine for Growth. The primary focus for Government s 5 million commitment of additional funding for Midlands Connect is to help the Midlands develop its vision and strategy for transforming transport connectivity across the region in order to drive economic growth. The availability of these new funds allows the MC Partnership to set a credible long term investment strategy which can support the building of the Midlands as an Engine for Growth and sustain investor confidence in the region. It allows the MC Partnership to review and scale up the existing work programme already under way, without losing its existing pace, focus and value. II. MC Governance In moving the Midlands Connect programme forward and acknowledging the importance of accountability and transparency, the MC Partnership is simplifying and strengthening its governance arrangements to reflect its new partnership agreement with Government.

2 In doing so the MC Partnership aims to maximise geographical representation from across the Midlands ensuring the Midlands Transport Strategy supports the long term sustainable growth of both rural and urban economies in the region. The MC Partnership is a young but strong partnership. Figure 1 below sets out the proposed governance arrangements allowing the Partnership to continue to invest in a One Voice approach thus becoming a solid platform for powering the Midlands Engine. Figure 1: Midlands Connect Governance structure The Midlands Connect Partnership has gone from strength to strength with political and business leaders recognising the role of the Partnership as a catalyst for unprecedented collaboration and partnership working across the Midlands. In order to maintain its strength at a Midlands wide level, the Partnership will continue to work together through the proposed Midlands Connect Partnership Advisory Board providing strategic guidance to the Strategic Board and screening wider environments ensuring alignment with other Strategic agendas e.g. Midlands Engine. The MC Partnership Advisory Board will also be responsible for the appointment of an Independent Chair, members from Local Authorities and LEPs representatives on both the MC Strategic Board and the MC Steering Group. In line with good governance practices, the Midlands Connect Partnership proposes the establishment of a Strategic Board which will be collectively responsible for the long-term sustainability and success of the programme. The Strategic Board will make binding decisions on behalf of the Midlands Connect Partnership with representation from Government, DfT, Local Government and LEP partners from across the Region. A more detailed description of the proposed governance arrangements for the MC Partnership is set out in Annex B.

3 III. A Project Team for Midlands Connect In taking forward the MC programme it will be crucially important to have the management resource, skills and expertise necessary to deliver such a project. Considering the scale and nature of the MC programme the MC Partnership is assembling a Project Team (see Figure 3) responsible for the development, implementation and monitoring of the Midlands Connect programme of works. Figure 3: Midlands Connect Project Team
