The Chair remarked in respect of minute 4 that the words ‘until the AGM in
2016’ were likely to be removed when the Working Party considered an item
on the Broadway Theatre Working group later in the agenda.
The Chair further raised a call for a review of appointments of directors to the
Catford Regeneration Partnership Ltd company The Head of Law said a
report could be considered by the Working Party after the completion of the
RESOLVED that the minutes of the meeting held on June 10 2015 be
confirmed and signed as a correct record.
None were made.
Four options for the consideration of the Working Party were presented by the
Interim Scrutiny Manager.
The Chair reported he had discussed the options with the Chair of the
Sustainable Development Committee and concluded options that did not
sustain the valuable public transport liaison function could not be
recommended. He said an opportunity now existed to formalise support
arrangements and provide a direct link between scrutiny, the executive, TfL
and transport providers.
The Chair suggested a recommendation to Council of Option B, modified to
include membership on the liaison committee of the Chair and Vice-Chair of
Sustainable Development Committee and the Cabinet Member with
responsibility for Transport.
The Working Party agreed the Terms of Reference should be as set out in
paragraph 4.2 of the report. The Chair added that the impact on the wider
balance of responsibilities between Select Committees needed to be reviewed
and the Interim Head of Scrutiny should draw up a short report for
consideration at the next meeting of the Working Party.
(1) the Council be recommended to approve Public Transport Liaison as a
body of the Council with the terms of reference set out in paragraph 4.2;
(2) the Chair and Vice-Chair of Sustainable Development Committee and the
Cabinet Member with responsibility for Transport be nominated as members
and all other Councillors should have the right to attend and ask questions;
(3) the new committee should meet four times a year.
The Chair proposed that the suggested 6 month extension of the Working
Group be agreed or at such earlier time as the final report is written. The
Chair of the Working Group, Councillor Walsh, said he fully endorsed this
RESOLVED that the Broadway Theatre Working Group be extended for six
months or such earlier time as a final report is agreed.
The meeting closed at 7.10pm.
