REVIEW OF POLITICAL PROPORTIONALITY OF THE COUNCIL AND APPOINTMENT OF COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIPS pdf icon PDF 376 KB

The Local Government and Housing Act 1989 requires local authorities, where Members are divided into political groups, to review annually the representation of the political groups on their principal committees to ensure that the seats are allocated in the same proportion as that in which the council as a whole is divided.

 

This report recommends that the Council establish committees, allocate the seats on those committees to political groups represented on on the Council in accordance with the statutory proportionality rules, and agree to the appointment of the groups’ nominees.

 

Recommendation

 

It is recommended that Council:

 

i.              Note the political balance of the Council, as set out in paragraph 4.4.

ii.            Approve the constitution of committees, the allocation of seats, the appointment of members to those seats in accordance with Group’s nominations, and the nomination of chairman and vice-chairman positions, as set out in Annexes 1 and 2.

iii.           Approve the allocation of seats and appointments to the Surrey County Council Local Committee.
