The Chief Executive Officer considered the
report regarding the revised Prudential Indicators for the period
2021/22 to 2023/24 presented to Members at the informal meeting of
the County Council held on 17 November 2021 and, having taken into
account the comments made by Members at the informal meeting and
all relevant information, resolved, under his emergency delegated
powers, to approve:
• The revised Prudential Indicators for the period 2021/22 to 2023/24 as set out in Appendix A in the report to an informal meeting of the Executive on 31 August 2021.
By whom: Richard Flinton, Chief Executive Officer, under his emergency delegated powers and after consultation with Members at the informal meeting of the County Council held on 17 November 2021.
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 (“the 2020 Regulations”), 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 has been periodically reviewed since that time and will be further reviewed by full Council at its February 2022 meeting.
The Chief Executive Officer took all relevant information into account in exercising his emergency delegated powers in this matter, including considering the views of the Members at the informal meeting of the County Council Members held on 17 November 2021.
