Minutes:

Report RES12072

 

It was agreed that the report should be considered as a matter of urgency to enable the appointment process to take place on 20th April 2012 as scheduled.

 

In Bromley, only appointments to posts designated as being at Chief Executive or Chief Officer level were normally made by Members, although by law Members could appoint to Deputy Chief Officer posts as defined by Section 2 (8) of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989. The role of the Deputy Chief Planner would require a high level of Member engagement, so the Chief Executive had requested that the appointment be carried out at Member level.  Three candidates had been identified by officers for the final interview on 20th April. 

 

RESOLVED that

 

(1) the request of the Chief Executive that the appointment to the post of Deputy Chief Planner be made by Members be agreed.

 

(2) the interview panel to appoint the Deputy Chief Planner consist of the following Councillors –

 

Stephen Carr, Peter Dean, Charles Joel, Mrs Anne Manning, Tony Owen and Colin Smith, plus one representative to be notified from each of the Liberal Democrat and Labour groups.
