Decision details


Decision Maker: Governance, Audit and Standards Committee

Decision status: For Determination


Members considered the proposals to be put forward for consultation as part of the Community Governance Review that would be starting June 2021.


The recommendations from a Corporate Governance Review would help to deliver improved community engagement, more cohesive communities, better local democracy and more efficient delivery of local services.


Discussions ensued around the proposed boundaries and how members of the public would be consulted. Suggestions included setting up a task and finish group, holding both face to face and virtual roadshows to engage with the public and ensure Parish/Town Councils were aware of the Council’s proposals affecting their particular parish.



1.            The Terms of Reference for the Review as attached in the report at appendix 1 be approved.

2.            The proposed consultation programme as set out in Appendix 2 of the report be approved.

3.            The Consultation proposals as set out in Appendix 3 of the report be approved.
