To receive any questions or petitions from members of the public.



The Committee received the following question from a member of the public in attendance at the meeting.


    Nigel Slack


The date for the submissions to the Transition Inquiry was very tight, understandably. However, can the Committee confirm the evidence sessions on the 7 and 8 December 2021, will not be the last opportunity for public to input on the design and development of the new Committee Framework or the finer grain detail still awaiting development?


In response to the public question, the Chair (Councillor Julie Grocutt) explained the importance of public engagement and mentioned that Involve intended to consult with members of the public in the upcoming months, on how they could engage with the Council on the design of the new system. The Chair mentioned that engagement with stakeholders and the wider public would be a key part to success of transitioning to a Committee System.
