Work Programme

Report of the Director of Legal and Governance.










































The Committee considered a report of the Director of Legal and Governance that outlined the work programme for the remainder of the municipal year.  Members were asked to identify any further items for inclusion.


The next meeting of the Audit and Standards Committee would consider -


  • Review of the Members Complaints Procedure
  • Summary of Statement of Accounts
  • External Audit Plan 2021-21
  • Annual Audit Letter 2019-20
  • Work Programme


The Chair advised that an update had been received on the recent Member Inductions session that took place post-Election on 13th and 14th May 2021.  Some key points to note from feedback received was –


  • Initial feedback positive from both members and officers, but it was felt that there was a lot of information crammed into one session,
  • Would be nice to meet people, rather than via Zoom


The chair advised that this would be circulated to the Committee, however a more detailed evaluation report was being produced.


It was advised that there would be a stage 3 to the training programme which would include sessions such as social media training, equality and diversity and public speaking.


It was asked if e-learning modules could be circulated to members.


The Director of Legal and Governance advised that the LGA and CFPS had given the Council a years’ worth of free training and would initially be delivering training to the individual groups.


RESOLVED: - that (1) the work programme be noted; and (2) guidance on report writing be included in the new work programme.
