Appointments to Sub Committees

Report of the Town Clerk.


The Committee received a report of the Town Clerk in respect of governance arrangements for the Committee’s various Sub Committees and remaining appointments.  Members noted the expressions of interest after the last meeting and, in the interests of democracy, they had been opened up again for nominations.  


In respect of the Housing Management and Almshouses Sub Committee, there had been three expressions of interest for one remaining place.  The Committee agreed to expand the Membership to allow ten Members, rather than eight, in addition to the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Grand Committee.  


Members noted that the Integrated Care Partnership Board was in transition from the former Integrated Commissioning Board, as part of an NHS restructure. The Deputy Chairman advised that the new arrangements would see a continuation of the neighbourhood/place based focus and senior posts were being recruited to.  The current Clinical Commission Group (CCG) would cease, and Members would receive an update on new arrangements and leadership once there was more certainty. 


In terms of the composition and governance arrangements of the Sub Committees, the Chair suggested and Members agreed, that this matter should be considered at a Members’ ‘Away Day’, noting that the Housing Management and Almshouses Sub Committee was subject to the recommendations of the Lisvane Governance Review, and might become a Grand Committee in its own right.


RESOLVED, that – the remaining appointments to the Sub Committees be agreed as follows:


  1. Henrika Priest, Jamel Banda and Susan Pearson be appointed to the Housing Management and Almshouses Sub Committee.


  1. Benjamin Murphy be appointed to the Safeguarding Sub Committee.


  1. Ceri Wilkins be appointed to the Integrated Commissioning Sub Committee


Naresh Sonpar be appointed as the Community and Children’s Services Committee’s representative on the Education Board.
