Chairman's Opening Remarks


In accordance with the Local Authorities (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority Meetings) Regulations 2020, it was acknowledged that this meeting was the first virtual meeting of the Appointments Sub-Committee to be held by the Council.  In this regard, the Chairman took the opportunity to outline to the Sub-Committee how the meeting would be conducted and confirmed that should there be more than one nominee highlighted for an appointment, the Democratic Services Officer would be asked to undertake a recorded vote, to ensure clarity and transparency.  However, if only one nominee had been highlighted for each appointment then this would be agreed subject to any Sub-Committee Member indicating otherwise.
