- Clarification that the Committee did not support the provision of all branding through external agencies.
- An additional paragraph be included summarising the Committee's views on branding.
- An additional paragraph be included summarising the Committee's views on residents' surveys.
- More explicit reference in the report to employee forums as a way of engaging employees in the EIT process and as a wider engagement mechanism.
- A minor amendment to recommendation 4, emphasising that it would be a Council protocol and the deletion of 'and promoted across the Council'.

The Scrutiny Officer would circulate the revised report to the Committee.
CAS
29/09
Members considered the progress updates on outstanding recommendations from previous reviews on Meeting Venues, Theatre Subsidy and Voluntary and Community Sector.

Members expressed disappointment at the slow progress in relation to meeting venues - recommendation 5.

The Committee agreed to sign off on the recommendation 2 for Theatre Subsidy due to the fact that recommendation had been superseded by the new contract.

Officers advised that they would investigate how the Voluntary and Community Sector recommendation 4 would be taken forward as part of the EIT programme.
CAS
30/09
Members were advised that the Committee had drawn an end to the current review once the amended final draft report for the EIT review on Communication, Consultation and Engagement had gone to Cabinet on 26th November 2009.
