The London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority has overall responsibility for the discharge of all of the Authority’s functions. The Authority itself meets regularly to consider and make decisions on key London Fire Brigade matters such as strategy, policy and the Brigade’s budget. In addition, it has established four specialist executive committees to consider and make decisions on specific areas of responsibility and to report to the Authority where appropriate, namely:
Membership of these committees reflects, so far as is practicable, the political balance of the Authority.
In addition, the Authority has established a Scheme of Delegation of Functions to Officers, which provides the relevant senior officers with the ability to undertake the range of specified actions on behalf of the Authority.
