Further to CEX/8 and, more recently, CEX/74 (2018/19) when a decision was deferred in order for further discussion to take place, Cabinet was asked to consider the appointment of a Member representative on the Appleby Fair Multi-Agency Strategic Co-ordinating Group for the remainder of the year.
The Leader and Promoting South Lakeland Portfolio Holder informed Members that considerable time had been spent colleagues in discussing the matter. The conclusion which had been reached was that, due to the sensitive nature and importance of the issue, it was felt necessary for the views of the administration to be taken into consideration by the Co-ordinating Group, and he, therefore proposed that Councillor Ian Mitchell should act as the Council’s representative.
In response to a comment, the Leader and Promoting South Lakeland Portfolio Holder advised that Councillor Mitchell had indicated that he would be available to attend the meetings of the Co-ordination Group.
RESOLVED – That Councillor Ian Mitchell be appointed as the Council’s representative on the Appleby Fair Multi-Agency Strategic Co-ordinating Group.
Reasons for Decision
Appointments to outside bodies assist in the delivery of the Council Plan through partnership working.
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected
Not to make appointments, which could affect the Council’s ability to influence partners on important strategic issues.
