There was a need to consider an urgent item of business with regard to the Business and Planning Bill, this item was previously considered by the Cabinet on 9 July 2020, however following an amendment to the Bill by the House of Lords on 21 July 2020, there was a need for Council to consider the item.
Therefore the Council; had before it a report* of the Group Manager for Public Health and Regulatory Services providing details of the emerging licensing changes and requesting that the Group Manager for Public Health and Regulatory Services be given delegated authority to enable pavement licences to be properly administered by the service, which included setting the relevant fee.
The Cabinet Member for Community Well-Being outlined the contents of the report explaining the need for the new delegation.
Councillor D J Knowles MOVED, seconded by Councillor A Wilce that:
1. The provisions of the Business and Planning Bill be NOTED
2. Delegated authority be given to the Group Manager for Public Health for the administration and enforcement of the provisions within the Business and Planning Bill on its passing into law. These delegations can then be sub-delegated to relevant officers.
3. Delegated authority be given to the Group Manager for Public Health for the setting of the fee for pavement licences.
Upon a vote being taken, the MOTION was declared to have been CARRIED.
