Meeting of the Executive held on 13/11/2001
OVERVIEW AND SCRUTINY REALLOCATION OF REMITS



OVERVIEW AND SCRUTINY REALLOCATION OF REMITS

The SIG’s suggested split of subject matter is as follows:-

1. Leisure

Cultural and Leisure Provision and Youth
Corporate Finance and Asset Management

2. Community

Housing and Community Welfare
Town and Village Liaison
Member Communications
Human Resources

3. Environment

Environment
Planning and Major Developments
Economic Development and Business Liaison
Process of Best Value, Corporate and Community Strategy

The benefits of the above division of responsibilities are:-

Each Committee has a clear service focus – e.g. housing, environment and leisure
The tendency for one committee to take a similar role to the former Policy and Resources Committee is removed
Workloads can be spread more evenly.

The allocation would be qualified as follows:-

Each Committee would cover finance, resource and the process of best value issues for its services.
Cross-cutting issues would be allocated by the co-ordinating panel.
Major projects would be allocated to the appropriate Committee dependent on the subject matter.
