Decision details

Councillor involvement in working group activity

Decision Maker: Policy and Resources Committee

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Will deal with the -

- idea of working groups being agreed on an annual basis.
- recommendation from the CF that a A Boards working group be created.
- future of the sustainable transport forum


The Head of Corporate Government introduced the report which asked the Committee to a request from the Canterbury Forum for a working group on a-board and to consider the future of the sustainable transport forum.


The Committee discussed the matters and the Head of Corporate Governance gave points of clarification as necessary. 


The following were proposed seconded and when put to a vote agreed - 




  1. That the Chief Executive be given delegated authority to negotiate with Kent County Council to achieve enforcement of a-boards.
  2. The removal from the list of the Review of Polling Districts and Places Group
  3. That the Sustainable Transport Forum continues.


Reasons for the decisions: There was a view that there may be further work for the Seaside Byelaw working group to do. The matter of A-boards had been considered many times and was a matter for the county council - the Chief Executive would discuss the matter with KCC and report back. The Sustainable Transport Forum was a useful group for offices to consult with particularly considering the council's commitment to climate change.
