DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST
The members of the Council are invited to consider whether they have a personal or prejudicial interest, or statutory restriction on voting*, in connection with any matter to be debated or determined at this meeting and, if so, to declare it and state the nature of such interest or restriction.
* A letter from the Director of Law, HR and Asset Management explaining the restrictions imposed by section 106 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 has been circulated to all Members of the Council.
To receive petitions submitted in accordance with Standing Order 21.
To receive as a correct record the minutes of the meeting of the Council held on 15 February 2010.
On a motion by the Leader of the Council, to approve recommendations from the Cabinet meeting held on 22 February 2010 (to follow), subject to consideration of any amendments received in accordance with Standing Order 7(2) or Standing Order 13 (Budget Council Procedure) - see item 6 below.
If the proposed budget is amended, wholly or partly, that will be regarded as an in-principle decision, which will automatically come into effect five working days from the date of that decision, unless the Leader of the Council informs the Director of Law, H.R. and Asset Management in writing within that time that he objects to the decision becoming effective and provides reasons why. In that case, the Director of Law, H.R. and Asset Management will call another meeting of the Council within a further five days (for which a reserve date has been set, namely 10 March). The Council will then be required to reconsider its decision, and the Leader’s written submission. At that second meeting the Council can:
(i) accept the Cabinet’s recommendation, without amendment or objection; or
(ii) approve a different decision which does not accord with the recommendation of the Cabinet
by a simple majority of votes cast at the meeting.
A copy of the Estimates for 2010/11 is attached but has been circulated separately to members of the Council.
