Agenda item

Any other Business that the Chairman considers urgent


Members discussed an email from a Member of the Court of Common Council regarding Member conduct in a Planning & Transportation Committee meeting. The email had been circulated to the Audit & Risk Management Committee and Policy & Resources Committee, prior to being published on a public blog. External Members led the discussion. The Deputy Chairman (External) noted that the role of the Audit & Risk Management Committee was, amongst other points made, to act as an assurance committee and not to be part of the process, indeed it should sit outside the process, and not sit above the Court of Common Council. Other Members confirmed this view. An external member suggested that the committee might undertake a planning risk review. It was therefore agreed that the matter in question was not in scope of the committee and the matter was closed.
