Title of Item/Report
Appointment Panel for Post of Corporate Director for Development and Neighbourhood Services
Record of the Decision
Consideration was given to a report that provided Members with details of the proposed arrangements for the Appointment Panel for the post of Corporate Director for Development and Neighbourhood Services.

The Council's Employee Employment Procedure Rules required Cabinet to consider and refer to full Council with recommendations for approval, arrangements for the appointment of Chief Officers (e.g. Corporate Directors).
In order to ensure that the required Appointment Panel for the post of Corporate Director for Development and Neighbourhood Service was established, Cabinet was asked to consider the proposals and recommend them for approval to Council.
In accordance with the normal arrangements for Chief Officer and Assistant Chief Officers appointments, Cabinet was asked to recommend to Council that a Panel for the appointment of the Corporate Director for Development and Neighbourhood Service be established on the following basis:-

Leader of the Council
Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport
Cabinet Member for Housing and Community Safety
Cabinet Member for the Environment
2 Members from the Labour Group
2 Members from Independent Groups
1 Member from Liberal Democrat Group

If circumstances required it, any member initially identified to serve on the Panel may request that a substitute, from his/her political group, serve in their place. This would necessitate the substitute member concerned attending the Panel's shortlisting meeting, formal interview and any other relevant meetings associated with the appointment.
RECOMMENDED to Council that the proposed Appointment Panel arrangements outlined at paragraph 3 of the report be recommended to Council for approval.
