Cabinet Decision: 22nd May 2008
Title of Item/Report
Cabinet Member Portfolios
Record of the Decision
Consideration was given to a report that provided details of proposed changes to the current Cabinet Member portfolio responsibilities.

Members of Cabinet were provided with a copy of the current Cabinet Member portfolios.

It was proposed to establish an additional Cabinet Member portfolio by separating the existing Corporate and Social Inclusion portfolio into two. This involved the creation of a Corporate Management and Finance portfolio and a separate Access and Communities portfolio. It was considered that the proposal fitted more appropriately with the present functionally based approach to Cabinet portfolios. Copies of the two new portfolios were presented to Members.

It was explained that in addition, it was proposed to extend the Leader's portfolio to include the following:-

• Sports Development
• Tourism
• Development of Tees Valley Sport Partnership
• High Achievement in Sport - Strategy and Policy

It was noted that if agreed, this would necessitate amendments to the Regeneration and Transport and Arts, Leisure and Culture portfolios. The revised Leader, Regeneration and Transport and Arts, Leisure and Culture portfolios were also presented to Members of Cabinet.

RECOMMENDED to Council that the proposed changes specified in the report and Appendix 2 to the report be approved.
