Councillor Arshad arrived before the start of this item.
Council considered a report of the Head of Law and Governance recommending approval of the Council’s scheme of delegation with a change to the Proper Officer designations (Parts 5 and 10 of the Council’s Constitution).
Councillor Brown, Leader of the Council, presented the report and moved the recommendations. She proposed an amendment to the proper officer for Highways Act 1980 functions to ensure this was assigned to an employee only of the Council: changing Highways Client Manager to Client Manager (ie the person with responsibility as client manager for Oxford Direct Services).
The recommendations as amended, on being seconded and put to the vote, were adopted.
Council resolved to:
approve the Council’s scheme of delegation as set out in Part 5 of the Council’s Constitution with the addition to the proper officer designations set out in the report, and as amended at the meeting
