Cabinet: 30th May 2012


Report of the Leader


Timetable of Meetings: May 2012 - May 2013


Purpose of the Report

1.             To consider proposed amendments to the timetable of meetings for the period May 2012 - May 2013 following the Local Government elections on 3rd May and the subsequent change in the political administration of the Council.


That the timetable of meetings for May 2012 - May 2013, as set out in Appendix A, be approved, subject to any future changes in arrangements for meetings deemed appropriate by the Mayor of the Council or the relevant Committee Chairman.

Reason for the Recommendation

To approve / publish a calendar of meetings for the 2012/13 municipal year.



2.             The current timetable of meetings was approved by the former Cabinet at its meeting held on 19th October 2011.  Members are required, therefore, to consider changes to the timetable for the ensuing municipal year which solely relate to Cabinet meeting dates requested by the Leader.
