To consider the Work Programme of the Policy Development Panel (Report of the Assistant Director, Democratic Services is enclosed)
Consideration was given to the report of the Executive Manager – Governance, which set out the Work Programme of the Policy Development Panel. The Work Programme consisted of two separate sections, the first setting out the dates of the future Panel meetings along with proposed items for consideration, and the second setting out the Task Groups that had been identified by the Panel.
Officers asked if the Panel was happy with the size of the next meeting. Members agreed that they were happy with the Work Programme’s content. The Chairman of the Panel stated that the meeting should go ahead as planned with the full Work Programme.
Public Open Spaces Task Group
· The Task Group Chairman stated that its work was almost complete and would possibly require one more meeting.
· Members raised the issue that the date included on the appendix was wrong by a year, in that it should have been 2017, not 2016.
Data Protection and Data Retention Task Group
· The Task Group was still active and it had been agreed that it would continue for a further 12 months.
