Reports from Outside Bodies - East Midlands Council AGM (JB)


There was one Outside Body report submitted by the Deputy Chair of the Authority, who had attended the East Midlands Council Annual General Meeting on the 14th July.  The meeting discussed regional priorities including rail improvements, climate change challenges and central government funding.


The Deputy Chair encouraged Members to report back from their Outside Body appointments, a comment which was endorsed by the Chair of the Authority.


The Deputy Chair also added that the emerging combined authority of the East Midlands Council would make the Peak District National Park the principal rural asset in the East Midlands Councils and that Members should be mindful of this in regards to funding for planning, transport and other issues.
