Decision details

Emergency delegated powers as a result of Coronavirus Lockdown

Decision Maker: Managing Director

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Following DD/025/20/SS to extend the period during which the attached delegations are in place for a further 2 months until 31st July 2020.
In addition, the new Director of Development has started and certain delegations are included for this new post.

Reasons for the decision:

The coronavirus resulted initially in few member meetings taking place. To deal with the issues which would arise and which would normally be decided by a formal member meeting, the attached delegations were put in place for 3 months until 31st May 2020.
The Council is now starting to run Member meetings virtually. However not all meetings can yet be done this way. Accordingly these delegations are being extended for a further 2 months until 31st July 2020.

Alternative options considered:

Not to extend – currently there are still gaps in the holding of member meetings which means that some of the business of the Council would come to a halt if these were not extended.
