MAIDSTONE BOROUGH COUNCIL
28 FEBRUARY 2018
REPORT OF THE DEMOCRACY COMMITTEE HELD ON 14 DECEMBER 2017
APPOINTMENT OF AN INDEPENDENT MEMBER TO THE JOINT INDEPENDENT REMUNERATION PANEL
Issue for Decision
On 14 December 2017 the Democracy Committee considered an application for an Independent Person to serve on the Joint Independent Remuneration Panel.†
That Mr Christopher Webb be appointed as the Independent Person for the Joint Independent Remuneration Panel.†
Reasons for Recommendation
The Committee interviewed the applicant and were satisfied that he met the criteria for the position given his past experience and his answers to the questions asked of him.
Alternatives Considered and Why Not Recommended
The Council could choose not to appoint an Independent Person for the Joint Independent Remuneration Panel but the Council has a statutory duty under the Local Authorities (Membersí Allowances) (England) Regulations 2003 to appoint an Independent Panel to review the Members Allowances on a periodic basis and a review is due in March 2018.† Any further delay to that process would not be practicable.† †
