Decision details

Allocation of seats to political groups

Decision Maker: Council

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Council considered a report of the Head of Democratic Services advising Members of the calculations relating to the allocation of seats in accordance with the Local Government and Housing Act 1989. Councillor Reynolds, formerly a Labour Group member, had recently become an independent Councillor unaligned to any group on the Council. The change required a re-calculation.


Councillor O’Dwyer-Henry proposed, seconded by Councillor Wood:


“That the recommendation as set out in the report, be approved.”


There was no debate, nor or any indications to speak or vote against the proposition, therefore it was clearly carried.




That in accordance with Section 15 of the Local Government and Housing Act, 1989 and Part 4 of the Local Government (Committees and Political Groups) Regulations, 1990, the City Council approves the calculations and allocation of seats set out in the report, including the adjustment set out in paragraph 5 of the report, whereby the Labour group pass a seat to the Green group.
