Background Information: The Council is required to review its Members Allowances scheme. Prior to adopting a new scheme, it must have received a report from an Independent Panel. The Committee will make recommendations to Council. Following an agreed Motion at Council on 21.10.21, the Committee will consider a Parental Leave Policy for councillors. Finally, Council agreed that Area Committees meet virtually to the end of 2021. A decision is needed to extend meeting virtually (and staying non-decision making) or revert to in-person meetings.
