Officer Reports


Report of Constitution Working Party - Completing the Transition to a Committee System pdf icon PDF 355 KB

This report contains recent recommendations from the Constitution Working Party (CWP) on continuing amendments to the Constitution designed to smooth the transition from Cabinet to a Committee system of Governance.


This report also brings to full Council amendments recommended by the Planning Committee and accepted by CWP relating to Site Visits (Appendix 5) .

This report draws Council’s attention to consequential changes to be made by the Monitoring Officer under delegated powers as a result of organisational and legislative changes (e.g., Part 4, Section 1, Para 7.2 references to Public Health England should be changed to UK Health Security Agency), and change of titles, eg Group “Head of Law and Governance & Monitoring Officer” instead of “Head of Council Advice & Monitoring Officer” and legacy changes which were previously missed but are consequences of decisions made by Full Council to move to a Committee system.
