Election of the chairman for the council year

TO CONSIDER Following the death of Councillor Samper it is necessary for the Committee to elect a new Chairman for the current council year.


[If the Vice-Chairman is elected as Chairman, it will be necessary to appoint a new Vice-Chairman for the council year.]


Declaration of any interests by Councillors or Officers

TO RECEIVE any declarations for the following in so far as they relate to the business for the meeting:-


a.       Disclosable Pecuniary Interests

b.       Other Significant Interests (what were previously thought of as non-pecuniary Prejudicial interests)

c.       Voluntary Announcements of Other Interests


Voluntary Announcements of Other Interests not required to be disclosed as DPI’s or OSI’s, ie announcements made for transparency reasons alone, such as:

         Membership of outside bodies that have made representations on agenda items, or

         Where a Councillor knows a person involved, but does not have a close association with that person, or

         Where an item would affect the well-being of a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc but not his/her financial position.


[Note: an effect on the financial position of a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc; OR an application made by a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc, would both probably constitute either an OSI or in some cases a DPI].
