Summary

 

Consideration was given to proposed nominations for the appointments of representatives to serve on outside bodies for the forthcoming year 2019/20.

 

In presenting the report, the Leader and Promoting South Lakeland Portfolio Holder explained that the list of outside bodies to be appointed to by Cabinet was not complete and advised that Members would be asked to consider further appointments at a future meeting of the Cabinet, for example to the Sedbergh Economic Partnership.  He also drew attention to the proposal to appoint to the George Moore Education Trust, a new outside body for 2019/20.

 

A query was raised in relation to a request made at the Annual Council Meeting on 21 May 2019 for provision to Members of a full list of the outside bodies appointed to by Council and the percentage of annual reports received from those Members appointed in 2018/19.  It was confirmed that this information was being prepared and that it would be circulated to all Members in due course.

 

Information was sought with regard to the Cumbria Armed Forces Community Covenant which had been sign up to on behalf of South Lakeland District Council in 2013 and the Chief Executive undertook to investigate the matter.
