Preamble

ItemPreamble
881Members considered the minutes of 31st October 2006.
882Members considered the final report of the review of Corporate Consultation.

Corporate Management Team had suggested that it would not be appropriate for Policy Officers' Group to provide a first point of contact for Members (as set out in Recommendation 1) as it would introduce an added level of bureaucracy. It was therefore proposed that the reference be deleted from Recommendation 1.

Members should continue to approach the Consultation Team (or Lead Officer identified in the Consultation Plan) direct.
883Members considered the scope and project plan for the review of meeting venues which had been created as a result of the tripartite meeting between the Chairman, Scrutiny Officer, Mr M Wardle (Property Manager) and Mrs K Hornsey (Administrations Manager).

Members were advised that the review was to be completed by May due to the elections.
