The Council considered the report of the Director of Strategy, Performance and Governance seeking appointments for two outside bodies and a vacancy on the Corporate Governance Working Group, as follows:
· Safer Essex Group – A Member representative had been requested on this Group and its Terms of Reference were attached as Appendix A to the report.
· Police, Fire and Crime Panel – The Panel had advised that representatives had to be from the same political group and therefore the Council was asked to revise the appointments made at the Statutory Annual Council meeting in May 2022.
· Corporate Governance Working Group – Councillor Mrs P A Channer had been appointed to this Group by the Council but was also allocated a seat as the Leader of the Council. There was therefore a vacant seat on the Working Group which needed to be filled.
The Leader of the Council presented the report and proposed that Councillor B B Heubner be appointed to the Safer Essex Group and Councillor Mrs J L Fleming to the Corporate Governance Working Group. This proposal was duly seconded.
Councillor Mrs J L Stilts proposed that Councillor C Mayes be appointed as the substitute Member on the Police, Fire and Crime Panel. This proposal was duly seconded.
In response to a question, the Leader advised that all Members should make sure that Minutes of Outside Bodies were loaded onto Mod.Gov for all Members to view.
The Chairman put the proposals to the Council and upon a vote being taken these were duly agreed.
(i) that Councillor B B Heubner be appointed to the Safer Essex Group for the remainder of the municipal year;
(ii) that Councillor C Mayes is appointed as the substitute Member on the Police, Fire and Crime Panel.
(iii) that Councillor Mrs J L Fleming is appointed to the vacancy on the Corporate Governance Working Group.
