In accordance with the Council Procedure Rules, the Annual Meeting is required to set thresholds for Key Decisions. The attached document sets out the existing arrangements for adoption.
The Solicitor to the Council & Monitoring Officer presented a report proposing to note Key Decisions taken over the last 12 months under Special Urgency rules and urgency provisions, and to agree the Key Decisions financial thresholds for the forthcoming year.
The recommendations in the report were moved by Councillor Clive Moesby and seconded by Councillor Duncan McGregor.
(i) Council notes that no decisions have been taken over the past 12 months under Special Urgency rules;
(ii) Council notes the no decisions taken over the past 12 months under Urgency provisions in the Council’s Scrutiny Rules, and
(iii) Council agrees that the financial thresholds for Key Decisions be maintained at £75,000 (Revenue) and £150,000 (Capital).
