SCRUTINY WORK PROGRAMME
Decision Maker: Partnerships Scrutiny Committee
Decision status: For Determination
The Scrutiny Coordinator guided Members through the Scrutiny Forward Work Programme (previously circulated).
It was explained that the Scrutiny Chairs and Vice Chairs had met on the 19th January 2023 and they considered a number of requests for Scrutiny at that meeting. Of the requests considered the Group asked that the Partnerships Scrutiny Committee schedule two items onto its Forward Work Programme for May 2023.
These were: -
· The Re-ballot for the Potential Rhyl Business Improvements District
· The Quality and Condition of Registered Social Landlords Housing Stock in Denbighshire.
In relation to the agenda for the next Partnerships Scrutiny Committee meeting due to be held on 30 March 2023, it was noted that currently there were no items to be discussed at that meeting. It was suggested by the Scrutiny Coordinator that the date of the March meeting was kept in the event that any urgent matters arose. In the event of no urgent business being forthcoming that meeting should be cancelled.
The Scrutiny Coordinator advised that in December 2022, Cabinet had approved a New Capital Process and supported the Terms of Reference for a new Capital Scrutiny Group. This would be similar to the former the Strategic Investment Group (SIG) that had been in existence during the term of the previous Council. A request had been received that one representative from each Scrutiny committee should be appointed to serve on this Group. There would be six meetings a year and the representative would be expected to report back to the Committee after they had attended the meeting. Therefore, it was requested that one representative and one substitute representative be nominated, chosen, and agreed by the Committee.
The Chair welcomed nominations from the Committee.
Councillor Peter Scott was nominated to be the representative for Partnerships Scrutiny Committee with Councillor Joan Butterfield being nominated as his substitute. Both these nominations were seconded and Members voted in favour of the appointments. At the conclusion of the discussion.
(i) subject to the inclusion of a progress report on the North Denbighshire Community Hospital/Royal Alexandra Hospital Development Project for the September 2023 meeting, to confirm its forward work programme as detailed in Appendix 1 to the report;
(ii) if, nearer the date of its next scheduled meeting on 30 March 2023 no business had come forward to warrant the holding of the meeting, it was to be cancelled; and
(iii) to appoint Councillor Peter Scott to serve as its representative on the Capital Scrutiny Group (CSG), with Councillor Joan Butterfield to serve as his substitute.
At this juncture the Committee adjourned for a break and resumed its business at 11.10am
