Extraordinary Council Meeting 14 February 2023
Recommendation 7 of the resolution passed at the extraordinary council meeting required a report to be included in the Members Newsletter within four weeks and published on the Council’s website “setting out how procedures for receiving and processing Standards complaints have been updated to comply with the recommendations of the Ombudsman”.
Our processes were reviewed prior to receipt of the final Report at a meeting of the Standards Committee of 18 March 22. The procedure put in place at that meeting can be viewed in the minutes of the 18 March Standards Committee. These will need to be kept under review by the new council.
In relation to recommendation 6 Governance Training by Bethan Evans will provide two training sessions. These will be in person sessions in the council chamber covering the same content so Members and the Senior Management Team can attend on either Wednesday 12 July at 10.30 am or on Monday 17 July at 5.30 pm. In addition, as part of the first week post election induction training for new Members, there will be an in-person session on standards and code of conduct provided by Hoey Ainscough Associates Ltd
Recommendations 5 and 9 of the resolution remain to be completed and are subject to legal advice which we are reviewing.
