The Recommended Minute of Cabinet of 18 September had not been notified for inclusion on the agenda within the statutory deadline. The Mayor agreed to accept this item onto the agenda as a matter requiring urgent consideration in order that regard be had to their content in reaching its decision.
Councillor Learney, Cabinet Member for Housing and Asset Management, moved that the Recommended Minute (5 and 6) be approved and adopted (seconded by Councillor Thompson, Leader).
During questions, clarification was sought with regard to the membership of the Housing New Build Panel. The Strategic Director Services (Interim) confirmed that would include the Cabinet member for Housing and the Strategic Directors for Services and Resources. The Strategic Director (Place) would not be involved in the Panel whilst he was formally appointed as a Company Director. Furthermore, an error at paragraph 13.2 should be corrected so that reference to the Housing Scrutiny Panel should read “New Build Panel”.
Council agreed that nominations to the Housing Company Scrutiny Panel should all be in proportion to the political make-up of the Council (two Liberal Democrat and one Conservative) and that Group Managers advise the Strategic Director accordingly
The meeting adjourned for a comfort break between 8.15pm and 8.35pm.
Reason Key: Significantly effects 2 or more wards;
