Chairs Communications

Minutes:

3.1 The national Good Scrutiny Award for the review of Adaptation for Climate Change, chaired by an independent expert was well deserved said the Chair Councillor Gill Mitchell. She had served on the panel with Councillors Tony Janio, and former Councillors Vicky Wakefield-Jarrett and David Watkins. It was also excellent news that the scrutiny team had been short-listed for Scrutiny Team of the Year.

 

3.2 On today’s agenda Councillor Mitchell explained that items 6 – 9 were now combined into one presentation that had been circulated as an addendum

 

3.3 Councillor Mitchell said that OSC would continue to work in an open, non-political way and aim to focus on ‘pre-decision’ rather than ‘post-delivery’ scrutiny. All Councillors could suggest a topic for review and the Commission would be looking forward to a positive and constructive challenge relationship with the Administration.
