Report of the Governance and Scrutiny Support Unit


This is a monthly report, which includes the recommendations monitor, relevant key decisions, the Committee’s work programme and any items for information.



Please note, there will be a Work Programming session at the rise of this meeting for Committee members only.




The report of the Governance and Scrutiny Support Unit which contained key decisions within the Committee’s remit and responses to previous recommendations was submitted for comment. Members were also invited to agree the Committee’s future work programme.


A Member commented that information on climate change and the actions being taken by the Council needed to be prominent on the Council’s home webpage.  The Executive Member for Environment and Transport stated that she had responded to this question previously at a meeting of full Council and advised that the information referred to was accessible and available on the Council’s website. In response to a comment regarding the previous recommendation asking for consideration to be given to the establishment of a Climate Clock in the city, similar to that in Glasgow (see 14 October 2021), the Executive Member for Environment and Transport stated that consideration would be given as to the most appropriate method of messaging on the issue of climate change.


The Committee noted that it would be discussing the work programme for the forthcoming municipal year in further detail in a private session following the meeting, and that an updated work programme reflecting this discussion would be circulated as normal in the papers for the next meeting.




The Committee note the report and agree the work programme, noting the above comments.
