Meeting: 11/03/2020 - Executive Committee (Item 26)

Service Review

To consider the report of the Chief Officer Commercial.

Additional documents:


Having regard to the views expressed by the Proper Officer regarding the public interest test, that on balance the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighed the public interest in disclosing the information and that the report should be exempt.


RESOLVED that the public be excluded whilst this item of business is transacted as it is likely there would be a disclosure of exempt information as defined in Paragraph 14, Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act, 1972 (as amended).


The Leader of the Council declared an interest in this item but upon seeking legal advice remained in the meeting.


Consideration was given to the report of the Chief Officer Commercial.


The Chief Officer Commercial spoke to the report and highlighted the main points contained within the report.


The Deputy Leader commented that with the improved working relationships and a clear way forward he supported option 2.


The Leader said that the creation of the Strategic Partnership Board would be key to the successful delivery of the service and go a long way to eradicate past issues.


RESOLVED that the report which contained information relating to the financial/business affairs of persons other than the Authority be accepted and option 2, namely that Executive Committee scrutinised the report and attached appendices and make recommendations to pursue Route B.
