Licensing and Regulatory Sub-Committee Chairmen

The Independent Remuneration Panel (in undertaking its review of Members Allowances in 2018) asked that the Licensing and Regulatory Committee give consideration to the number of Chairs it appoints to its Sub Committees.

Subsequently the Leader established a Governance Task Group with the purpose of reviewing Constitutional matters and one of the tasks it undertook was to review the Membership size of the Committee in preparation for the 2019/20 Municipal Year (following the implementation of the Boundary Review recommendations).

One of the outcomes of the Task Group’s work was to put forward a recommendation that the size of the Committee reduce to 12 but that the number of Sub Committee Chairs be retained at 5 to allow for full operational flexibility.

As a result the Committee is requested to appoint 5 Members to the position of Chair for the Sub Committee for the 2019/20 Municipal Year.

Minutes:

RESOLVED that:

a)    Councillors A. M. Lynch, F. Kelly and R. Absalom be appointed to act as sub-committee Chairs; and

b)    To delegate authority to the Head of Legal and Governance to appoint the remaining 2 sub-committee Chairs in consultation with the Chairman of the Licensing and Regulatory Committee and the Group Leaders.
