To consider the proposed Committee allocations by party and the nominations received. Also to consider the nominations for Chairs and Vice Chairs of Scrutiny and Regulatory Committees.

The committee will recommend to Council to agree the number and size of committees, agree to depart from proportionality on Planning Committee, and to note the nominations.

Decisions:

The Committee considered a report and update paper (published on 13 May) setting out the proposed Committees and the nominations received. The Committee considered the rules on political balance set out in the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 in developing the recommendations.
