Constitution Update to Part 3 Annexe 2 and Part 4 Contract Procedure Rules

Decision Maker: Council

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Council considered a report by the Senior Solicitor and Monitoring Officer (circulated previously) regarding the Constitution Update to Part 3 Annexe 2 and Part 4 Contract Procedure Rules.


In response to questions, the Chief Executive advised the following:


·       Part 3 Annexe 2 paragraph 4.12 – a local agreement was already in place and had been for a number of years for honorarium payments to be made to officers acting up over and above their normal duties.  The policy was set as a maximum of £500.  There was no specific budget for honorarium payments and was included within the overall service areas employee budget.  This was an amendment to ensure that constitution was up to date to reflect this.

·       Part 3 Annexe 2 paragraph 5.12 - it was understood that hackney carriage or private hire drivers had the right to appeal against revocation of licences, however further clarification would be sought.


It was moved by Councillor Roome and seconded by Councillor Patrinos that the recommendation be adopted.


RESOLVED that the proposed amendments to Parts 3 and 4 of the Constitution as annexed to this report be approved.
