To establish a General Purposes Appointments Sub-Committee to appoint the Head of Planning and Building.

Minutes:

At its meeting on 12 January 2022, the General Purposes Committee established an Appointments Sub-Committee to appoint the Head of Planning and Building. One of the appointed members is no longer able to attend the scheduled interviews and Sub-Committee meeting and therefore a replacement member was required to be appointed to the Sub-Committee.

 

Resolved:

 

1.  That Councillor Phil North be appointed to the Appointments Sub-Committee for the purposes of considering the appointment of the Head of Planning and Building to replace Councillor Adams-King.

 

2.  That should a Councillor appointed to the Appointments Sub-Committee for the Head of Planning and Building not be able to attend, then the Head of Legal and Democratic Services, in consultation with the Chairman of the General Purposes Committee, be delegated authority to appoint a substitute Councillor from the membership of the General Purposes Committee.
