Calendar of Council and Committee Meetings 2008 - 2009
Meeting: 12/02/2008 - Cabinet (Item 33)
Report of the Executive Member for the Cabinet Office.
The Democratic Services Manager presented the Calendar of Meetings for approval and explained the reasons behind the changes to a number of meeting dates.
In response to a concern about the Council meeting on Monday, 30 June 2008 possibly clashing with Norfolk County Council meetings, the Democratic Services Manager advised that confirmation would be sought before approval at Council on 21 February 2008.
The options available to Members were to recommend the attached schedule of meetings for the Council’s approval, including the provision for a meeting of the Council on Monday, 30 June 2008 and a meeting of Development Control Committee on Thursday, 3 July 2008, or to suggest amendments.
The reason for the recommendation was to comply with Standing Orders and the scheme of delegation for the recommendation to Council for adoption of a calendar of meetings for 2008-2009.
RECOMMEND to Council that
1) the calendar of Council and Committee meetings for 2008-2009 be approved;
2) the Annual meeting of the Council is held on 22 May 2008;
3) a meeting of the Council is held on Monday, 30 June 2008 to facilitate the approval of the Statement of Accounts; and
4) to allow for the Council meeting on 30 June 2008, a meeting of the Development Control Committee is held on Thursday, 3 July 2008 to maintain that Committee’s three week meeting cycle.
