Councillor Tim Briggs discussed changes in relation to the housing content of the report, particularly the resident engagement section. He stated that this part should not have been a reference within the Constitution and instead should have been a separate and more detailed terms of reference.


Furthermore, judgment on whether members were abiding to certain actions was currently seen as too vague and subjective. He also saw the Labour Council as too weak to get on top of what was happening to the Housing Department. Councillor Briggs was looking forward to further discussions with Councillor Gadsby, Cabinet Member for Housing, on the matter.


RESOLVED: That the changes to the Council’s Constitution, set out in Appendix 1 of the report presented, be approved.
