Agenda item

Work Programme

Report of the Interim Director of Legal and Governance



The Committee received a report containing the Committee’s Work Programme for consideration and discussion. The aim of the Work Programme was to show all known, substantive agenda items for forthcoming meetings of the Committee, to enable this committee, other committees, officers, partners and the public to plan their work with and for the Committee. It was highlighted that this was a live document and Members input to it was invaluable. Sections 2.1 in the report; References from Council and petitions were noted.


Members raised concerns of the number of items that needed to be allocated to meetings and that more meetings may be required to get through the work load.


It was advised that a work programming session would take place in January 2023 to go through the items and prioritise. This would be an opportunity to bring items forward and discuss the budget setting item.  The chair asked that anything needing discussion at this session would be added to a list held by Sarah Hyde in Democratic Services.


A suggestion was made around including another column in the work programme to show external deadlines.






1.    That the Committee’s work programme, as set out in Appendix 1 be agreed, including any additions and amendments identified in Part 1;


2.    That consideration be given to the further additions or adjustments to the work programme presented at Part 2 of Appendix 1;


3.    That Members give consideration to any further issues to be explored by officers for inclusion in Part 2 of Appendix 1 of the next work programme report, for potential addition to the work programme; and


4.    that the referrals from Council and Local Area Committees (petition and resolutions) detailed in Section 2 of the report be noted and the proposed responses set out be agreed.
