The Leader has made changes to his executive arrangements to take effect from 1 April 2021 as set out in the attached documents.

In accordance with Executive and Decision Making Procedure Rule 1.3 the Leader has decided to amend those parts of his Executive arrangements as shown in the appendices attached; namely
Section 3B(b): Executive Members Oversight of Officer Executive Delegations
Section 3E: Officer Delegation Scheme (Executive functions);
(a) General Delegations
(c) Director of Resources
(d) Chief Officer Financial Services

The Leader will present details of these changes, as required by Rule 1.3 at the next ordinary meeting of full Council.
All delegations remain subject to the saving that where the Leader or the relevant portfolio holder has directed or the Director considers it necessary the matter shall be referred to Executive Board for consideration. The Leader notes that Director’s functions may in turn be sub-delegated through those Directors’ sub-delegation schemes to officers of suitable experience and seniority subject to the same saving provision.

For the avoidance of doubt all other documents within the leader’s executive arrangements remain as presented to Council on 24th February 2021.
