Agenda item

Scheme of Delegations


Members considered a report relating to the content of the existing Officer Scheme of Delegations, which contained a list of powers delegated to officers by the Council.  Council was advised that this report was considered at the Annual Council meeting each year and that no new delegations were proposed for Members’ consideration.


During consideration of this item, concerns were raised by some Members about the scale and volume of powers that had already been delegated to Officers at the Council.  Whilst it was acknowledged that some powers needed to be delegated to officers to ensure the smooth operation of Council business, concerns were raised that there was a risk that this could become too extensive.




the current version of the Officer Scheme of Delegations be agreed.
