Amendment to Minutes

It has been brought to Officers’ attention that the proposal detailed within Minute 562 contains errors.  The Council therefore is asked to consider the following amendment to the previously approved Minutes of the Council meeting held on 21 November 2019:


Minute 562 – Appointment of Members to Serve on Working Groups of the Council (extract from Minutes with proposed changes):


The Council considered the report of the Head of Paid Service seeking Members’ agreement to appoint Members to serve on Working Groups of the Council for the municipal year.


The Leader of the Council proposed that the recommendation as set out in the report be agreed, subject to an amendment to amend the membership of the Corporate Governance Projects Member Task and Finish Working Group to:

·                 Councillors Mrs P A Channer, A S Fluker, B E Harker, R H Siddall and Mrs M E Thompson Miss S White.


This proposal was duly seconded.


In response to a question, the Chairman clarified that as a general rule the constitutional criteria of any Working Group had to be approved by the Council.


The Chairman then put the proposal in the name of Councillor Fluker and upon a vote being taken this was agreed.


RESOLVED that subject to the above amendment, the appointments to the Working Groups of the Council as set out APPENDIX 2 to these Minutes be confirmed.


If the above amendment is agreed the Appendix referred to will also be updated accordingly.
