Rate this item
(0 votes)

Spelthorne Councillors voted to implement a change towards a committee model of governance at a full Council Meeting on 30th July.

The Councillors voted on the motion which paves the way to end the Leader and Cabinet model of governance and introducing a committee system which allows for broader involvement of all councillors in decision making.

The motion, which was originally proposed by Cllr Helen Harvey, was debated with an amendment, submitted by Cllr Jan Doerfel, receiving 20 votes for, 17 against, with two abstentions, reads (as amended):

“This Council resolves to implement a change in decision-making governance arrangements, comprising the cessation of the current Leader and Cabinet model of governance and the implementation of a Full Committee model of governance. This is to be developed during 2020 with a view to the arrangements taking effect at the earliest opportunity, but no later than the commencement of the next Council Municipal Year in May 2021, subject to a legally and constitutionally robust process. The changes are to be debated and agreed by the Council.”
