Additional documents:


Mr Bailey reminded the Committee that during its meeting on 26 September 2018, Council agreed amendments to the scheme of Outside Bodies.  During consideration of this, an inconsistency was identified regarding the distribution of Outside Bodies relating to green spaces.  Mr Bailey stated that as the Heritage, Culture and Leisure (HCL) Committee was responsible for parks and open spaces, moving the following Outside Bodies to the HCL Committee would ensure consistency:


·  Vinters Valley Park Trust


·  Allington Millennium Green Trust


·  Hayle Park Nature Reserve


The Committee observed that:


·  Consistency was important, and this could be achieved by allocating Outside Body Council Representatives through the Democracy Committee or HCL Committee.


·  Both Council Representatives and Outside Bodies were responsible for ensuring that there was appropriate representation on these organisations and that updates were regularly reported back to the relevant Committee.


·  The Outside Bodies in question performed similar functions, and therefore, it was sensible to allocate these to a single Committee.


RESOLVED: That Council is recommended to agree the amended scheme of Outside Bodies.
