Chairman's Opening Remarks

Minutes:

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.
