County Council Annual Meeting – 15th May 2012

Council

We will be holding our annual meeting next Tuesday 15th May at Shire Hall.  In general, Council AGMs are a largely ceremonial affair, with the appointment of Committees and the election of a new Chair of the Council.

Councillor Philip Morris-Jones will be handing over his chains of office to a new Chair (we’ll let you know who this is next week), and a new Vice-Chair will also be elected.

As well as these procedural matters, there’s also quite a bit on the agenda:

  • “Going for Growth” – which, if agreed, will become the Council’s plan for promoting economic growth in the county
  • Improving decision-making and scrutiny – which looks at how we can improve scrutiny, and bring more public interest issues into Council meetings. Our petitions scheme is also up for review
  • Health and Wellbeing Board – this has been in operation for a while now in “shadow” form, but Council will be asked to agree it formally on Tuesday. You can read more about the Board on its new blog.

The papers for the meeting can be downloaded here.
