Appointment of Monitoring Officer and Deputy Monitoring Officers


Councillor Jonathan Brook, Leader and Promoting South Lakeland and Innovation Portfolio Holder, reported that the former Monitoring Officer having left the Council’s employment in September 2022, the function had in the interim been undertaken by the current Deputy Monitoring Officer. This was the first Council meeting when this appointment could be made. Following interim changes to the Legal, Governance and Democracy Team structure, the Council was now being asked to make formal appointments to the roles of Monitoring Officer and Deputy Monitoring Officers until 31 March 2023 in order to provide the necessary cover pending the dissolution of South Lakeland District Council.  No changes were proposed to the Council’s Pay Policy Statement around arrangements for the roles.


Councillor Brook having moved the recommendations contained within the report was seconded by Councillor Janette Jenkinson and it was unanimously




(1)        Julia Krier be appointed as Monitoring Officer for South Lakeland District Council, with effect from 1 September 2022 until 31 March 2023, to ensure legislative requirements are met; and


(2)        Danielle Walls and Josie Smith be appointed as Deputy Monitoring Officers, for the same term.
