Meeting: 05/04/2011 - Cabinet (Item 45)

Joint Management Arrangements (Agenda item 19)

Report of the Leader of the Council (William Nunn).

Additional documents:


The Chief Executive presented the report which informed Members of the outcome of the selection process of the Shared management Team.   Members were being asked to consider and agree to the proposals for dealing with vacant Joint Management posts and to agree to further consequential changes to the structure. It also asked each authority to address resulting capacity issues separately.


The Executive Member for Economic & Commercial was pleased to see the recommendation at 2.3 of the report and hoped that the Cabinet would support it as it was very important, in the line of work that his portfolio covered, to have instant access to a legal opinion.




See report.




The recommendations responded to the circumstances and identified opportunities for some modest savings on senior management.


RESOLVED that the progress towards implementing the new Joint Management Structure be noted.


RESOLVED to note that the Council of South Holland was recommending the creation of three posts.


RECOMMEND to Council that the recommendations at 2.2 (a) and (b) and 2.3 of the report be supported.
