DISCLOSURE OF INTERESTS
Members are invited to disclose any interest in any of the items on the agenda at this point of the meeting.
Members may still disclose any interest in any item at any time prior to the consideration of the matter.
There were no declarations of interest.
The report before Members detailed Part 2 Article 11.02 of the Constitution which authorises the Monitoring Officer to amend the constitution to correct errors or to comply with legal requirements or changes to the Council Structure.
The Constitution specifies that the Governance Committee must be notified of any such amendment at the first reasonable opportunity.
The changes made to the Constitution under this provision were detailed in the report. The changes related to Part 3, Appendix A of the Constitution to replace the Consumer Rights Act, 1985, with the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
The Governance Committee:
· Noted the changes made to the constitution as detailed in the report Notification No: 12.
Members considered the report of Jacqui Barr, noting that the Board of Tapestry (previously Age Concern) had written to the Council requesting that the number of representatives appointed to the Board be reduced from two to one.
The Committee noted that Councillor Wendy Brice-Thompson was content to leave the Board and that Councillor June Alexander was prepared to continue in the role.
The Governance Committee therefore agreed that the Council Representative for the Tapestry Board be Councillor June Alexander.
