RESOLVED – That:
(i) for the reasons set out within the body of the report, to add capacity to the establishment, Members recommend to Council the addition of the posts of Director of Development and Assistant Director of Development.
(ii) Members approve the recruitment process and implementation plan as set out within the body of the report.
(iii) Members approve plans to review the senior management structure of the Council as set out in section 3.3 of the report.
In order for the Authority to withstand the pressures of an uncertain world, the Council needed to be ‘masters of our own destiny’. The Council must first, however, invest in its own staff. Increasing the capacity of the Council and dedicating the new posts to developing an income will increase the Council’s chances of balancing its budgets in the long term.
The option to continue with the current arrangements was rejected for the reasons set out in the report.
Reason Key: Revenue Income or Expenditure of £75,000 or more;
