Any other items of scrutiny Members wish to consider

Minutes:

At the request of the Corporate Leadership Team (CLT) the following items were presented for inclusion in the Programme of Work:

 

Essex Highways

Members requested the opportunity to review the process undertaken by Essex Highways. 

 

A short discussion ensued with CLT advising Members that highways were managed by Essex County Council (ECC), however they would invite ECC to present to Members at a future meeting of the Committee.

 

Self-Policing of Maldon District Council

Councillor M S Heard proposed that following a number of complaints to the Joint Standards Committee, the Council needed to demonstrate that they were policing themselves appropriately.  This was duly seconded.

 

The Chairman put the proposal to the Committee and upon a vote being taken the addition of Self-Policing to the Programme of Work was agreed.

 

RESOLVED: 

                  (i)                That the Director of Service Delivery approach Essex County Council with a request for a presentation on Highways to Members.

                (ii)                That Self-Policing of Maldon District Council be added to the Programme of Work.
