Appointment to the Leeds Bradford Airport Consultative Committee pdf icon PDF 361 KB

To consider and confirm an appointment of one representative to the Leeds Bradford Airport Consultative Committee in order to fill a current vacancy, whilst having regard to the Appointments to Outside Bodies Procedure Rules, as summarised in the report of the City Solicitor.


The Committee received the report of the City Solicitor, which outlined the position regarding the one vacancy which currently existed in relation to  the Committee’s representation on  the Leeds Bradford Airport Consultative Committee.


As part of a Member consultation exercise which took place with the agreement of the Chair ahead of the meeting, the Committee noted that both Councillor Brooks and Councillor Howley had expressed an interest in taking up the role.


In considering the matter, both Members who had expressed an interest in taking the role advised the Committee how, if appointed, they would represent the interests of the communities within their own Wards together with those of the wider Community Committee and would act as a conduit between the community and the airport. It was also emphasised that such matters had implications for communities across the whole of the Inner North West area and as such, Leeds City Council representation on the Consultative Committee was important.



That Councillor Brooks be appointed as the Inner North West Community Committee representative to the Leeds Bradford Airport Consultative Committee.
