Report of the Town Clerk.
The Committee considered a report of the Town Clerk which presented a policy on gender identity, together with the findings from independent analysis of an online survey conducted in 2018.
It was noted that the Establishment Committee had agreed that the Policy should be subject to a review in five years’ time. A minor edit had also been made at paragraph 14, which was tabled; this was to remove two instances of superfluous wording. The Policy and Resources Committee endorsed these changes and the proposed review period.
RESOLVED: That the Gender Identity Policy be approved as set out at Appendix 1 and amended, with it to be subject to a five-year review.
