The Review of Standards Arrangements and Annual Report 2018/19 was presented by the Director of Policy and Resources (Monitoring Officer). She explained that the draft annual report, at Appendix 1 to the report, detailed the work of the Standards Committee and the operation of the Council’s Standards Arrangements over the last 12 months. The report would be presented to Full Council on 21 May 2019.
She stated that the Council had last reviewed its Standards Arrangements in 2017 and that it was appropriate to review them on a regular basis. It was the Monitoring Officer’s view that no immediate changes were required. However, it was proposed that the review of Local Government Ethical Standards, in particular the recommendations on best practice, be considered further by the Committee over the coming year. The Committee were invited to provide feedback on the arrangements and proposals for moving forward.
Members considered the Review of Standards Arrangements and Annual Report 2018/19.
RESOLVED – That
(1) having considered and reviewed the Council’s Standards Arrangements, no changes be proposed at the current time; and
