Non-Executive Officer Delegated Decisions

Purpose of committee

The Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014 places a requirement on the decision-making officers of the Council to produce a written record of any decision which falls within paragraph 7(2) of the Regulations. 


A decision falls within this paragraph if it would otherwise have been taken by the relevant local government body, or a committee, sub-committee of that body or a joint committee in which that body participates, but it has been delegated to an officer of that body either: -


(a)       under a specific express authorisation; or


(b)     under a general authorisation to officers to take such decisions and, the effect of the decision is to: -


(i)         grant a permission or licence;

(ii)      affect the rights of an individual; or

(iii)     award a contract or incur expenditure which, in either case, materially affects that

          relevant local government body’s financial position. 


Exempt and confidential information is not published. 


Officers of the City Council have delegated authority to take decisions that have been delegated to them under the Council’s Constitution. 


Copies of the decisions are published here and arranged according to their publication date.
