Meeting: 20/09/2018 - Licensing Committee (Item 30)

30 Committee Member Training pdf icon PDF 62 KB


Mr John Littlemore, the Head of Housing and Community Services presented a report on the Constitution requirement that Members and Substitute Members of the Licensing Committee undertake the required training to enable them to continue to serve on the Committee.


In response to a question from a Member, Mrs Bolas, the Legal Officer advised that it was not felt practical to hold the training in the evening as it would take a minimum of two to three hours to complete and was detailed.

The Committee noted that one more training session would be arranged to capture the two Committee Members and the Substitute Members who had not undertaken the training.  However, failure of any Member to attend the training session would result in them not being able to serve on the Committee as a Member or a Substitute.  Mrs Bolas advised that a further refresher training session would be organised in the new year.


RESOLVED:  That the content of the report be noted and the need for its Membership to be compliant with Maidstone Borough Council’s Constitution and the Licensing Committee decision of the 16 June 2016 on the requirements for training be agreed.


Voting:  Unanimous
