To set out the Work Programme of the Policy Development Panel (report of the Executive Manager Governance (Deputy Monitoring Officer) enclosed).
The Panel considered a report by the Executive Manager for Governance, which set out the work programme of the Panel. The work programme consisted of two sections, the first setting out the dates of future panel meetings along with proposed items for consideration, and the second setting out Task Groups that had been identified by the Panel.
Members considered the report, and the following issues were raised:
· The Chairman had liaised with the Executive Manager for Governance with regard to the Data Protection Task Group re-grouping to consider implications as a result of the UK’s exit from EU. He reported that this was not currently required but that members would be advised if and when the Task Group was required for this issue.
· Planning Design Task Group – It was noted that the remit for strategic planning now fell under a new portfolio. The Planning and Building Control Manager would be updating the Portfolio Holder for Finance, Strategy and Partnerships to update on the position with regard to the Task Group.
· With regard to the pending Devolution Task Group, members were advised that the publication of a White Paper had been expected. This had not yet happened, which prevented further progress.
That the Work Programme be noted.
