Special reasons justifying urgent consideration

The Mayor was of the opinion that although the following reports had not been available at least five clear days before the meeting, nonetheless they should be considered as a matter of urgency because of the special circumstances that instructions needed to be sought from the incoming administration and Opposition Group, after the local election on 5 May 2022, on council appointments/committee memberships, constitution amendments and related matters. This will enable decision-making to operate effectively as soon as possible. The delay to the reports had been caused by the short time period since the election of the new council.
