Tuesday, 8th March, 2022


9.00 am


Remote Meeting via Microsoft Teams


Under his delegated decision making powers in the Officers’ Delegation Scheme in the Council’s

Constitution, the Chief Executive Officer has power, in cases of emergency, to take any decision

which could be taken by the Council, the Executive or a committee. Following on from the expiry of

the Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and

Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020, which allowed for

committee meetings to be held remotely, the County Council resolved at its meeting on 5 May

2021 that, for the present time, in light of the continuing Covid-19 pandemic circumstances,

remote live-broadcast committee meetings should continue, with any formal decisions required

being taken by the Chief Executive Officer under his emergency decision making powers and after

consultation with other Officers and Members as appropriate and after taking into account any

views of the relevant Committee Members. This approach was agreed by full Council at its

February meeting following a review, and will be the subject of a further review and consideration

at the May AGM of the County Council.


The meeting will be available to view once the meeting commences, via the following link -    


Recordings of previous live broadcast meetings are also available there.
