Agenda item


To receive the record of proceedings of the ordinary meeting of the Council held on 29th November, 2023, and to approve the accuracy thereof.


Councillor Ball asked for clarification regarding Minute 58 – Recommendations from the Independent Remuneration Panel – Members Allowances. During the meeting he had asked about the reduction in allowances in 2015 and stated that this was not answered. As such, he put the question to the Leader.

The Leader explained that a decision was taken in the March 2015 budget to reduce Member Allowances. The Council asked the Independent Remuneration Panel to align the budgets accordingly with the decision that had been taken. This was done in order to save money for the taxpayer and this position was held for a number of years. 


Councillors Griffin and Yasseen spoke regarding Minute 63 – Notice of Motion – Israel and Palestine and the negative impact of the late withdrawal of the motion on the democratic process, elected Members and members of the public.

Resolved:- That the minutes of the meeting of Council held on 29 November 2023 be approved for signature by the Mayor.
