Minutes of previous meeting of 11 October 2018 pdf icon PDF 152 KB

    Minutes:

    The minutes of the meeting held on 11 October 2018 were approved as a correct record.

     

    Minute 29/18 It was raised at the Committee that a Member from Local Joint Committee should be involved in the Health and Safety Committee Meetings.

     

    It was explained to the Committee that the Member appointed to the Health and Safety Committee would be required to report to the Local Joint Committee and due to Local Joint Committee meetings only being called when there is business to discuss following the decision to approve this at the National Park Authority meeting in May 2019. It is likely that it would not be successful.

     

    The Committee suggested that an Authority Member be appointed to the Health and Safety Committee. The Director of Corporate Strategy and Development will raise the suggestion with the Health and Safety Committee Members to appoint an Authority Member to the Health and Safety Committee.

     

    The Chair raised concerns that the Local Joint Committee only met when there was business to discuss. It was agreed that provisional quarterly meetings would be arranged and cancelled if there was no business to discuss.  (This proposal was subsequently discussed at a meeting of the Governance Review Working Group and approved.  Dates for quarterly meetings during 2020 have now been circulated.)
