Local Code of Governance
Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Cabinet considered a report of the Chief Executive reviewing the Council’s Local Code of Governance (now to be called ‘A simple and effective governance framework’).
Reason for recommendations:
The Council is required to have in place a Local Code of Governance that sets out its governance framework.
Not adopting a revised simple and effective governance framework would mean the Council’s governance framework would lack clarity and would hinder delivery of the Southend 2050 outcomes.
