The technical and political committees are collaborative forums in which the focus of the work involved in drafting the Plan is debated, and technical decisions are made according to the prevailing political commitments, exercising the responsibility that citizens entrust to their elected representatives.
The committees envisaged within this participation space will be established as the various phases for drafting the Plan take place, in accordance with the Basic Document for drafting the PDU included in the Public participation programme of the Preliminary Document of the Plan.

Eleven representatives of metropolitan municipal councils are also members.
