Recommendation from the Overview and Scrutiny Committee in respect of Painshill Park

Minutes:

The Leader introduced the report and informed the Cabinet that, at its meeting on 22 March 2018, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee had received a written report from Mr. Michael Gove, the former Chief Executive of Painshill Park, regarding Painshill Park activities as at March 2018.

 

Members noted that during consideration of the written report, it had been suggested that for future Painshill Park updates, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee receive an annual update rather than 6 monthly reports.  Whilst supporting the revised reporting arrangements, the Overview and Scrutiny Committee also proposed that should the Chief Executive of Painshill Park have a matter that was pertinent for the Committee to be made aware of, arrangements should be made for this to be reported as and when required.

 

The Leader invited Councillor Mrs. J.R. Turner, Group Leader of the Hinchley Wood Residents’ Association Political Group, to address the meeting.  Whilst supporting the proposed change in reporting arrangements, Councillor Mrs. Turner requested that Painshill Park be asked to notify the Council when any of its management board / senior members of staff leave their organisation.  The Leader supported this approach and it was suggested that this additional request be included within the correspondence to Painshill Park advising them of the change in reporting arrangements.

 

On consideration of the recommendation from the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, the Cabinet

 

Recommended: that for future Painshill Park updates the Overview and Scrutiny Committee receive an annual report rather than six monthly reports.  However, should the Chief Executive of Painshill Park have a matter that was pertinent for the Overview and Scrutiny Committee to be made aware of, arrangements would be made for this to be reported as and when required.
