Frequency of Meetings and Terms of Reference

Report of the Town Clerk.


A report of the Town Clerk regarding the Terms of Reference and frequency of meetings of the Committee was considered. In response to a discussion on the wording of the role of the Committee (as laid out in Point A of the Terms) the Chairman clarified that the phrase “oversight of” had been added as it was not felt that the Committee had responsibility for the “management of” the markets named.


In response to a query by members, the Director of Markets and Consumer Protection clarified that the governance review had recommended that it be within the remit of the Committee to be responsible for the appointment of the Director’s position. The Chairmen of the three committees for which the Director had responsibility would sit on the appointment’s panel, with the Chairmanship of the panel and overall oversight being within the remit of the Market’s Committee.




a)    the Terms of Reference of the Committee be approved for submission to the Court, as set out at Appendix A, and that any further changes required in the lead up to the Court’s appointment of Committees be delegated to the Town Clerk in consultation with the Chairman and Deputy Chairman; and


b)    Members agree that the frequency of meetings per annum be arranged in consultation with the Chairman, Deputy Chairman and the Director of Markets & Consumer Protection, in order for them to align with the anticipated work programme for the year
