Orbis Partnership Governance

Decision Maker: Lead Member for Resources and Climate Change

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To agree amended governance arrangements for the Orbis Partnership


51.1     The Lead Member considered a report by the Chief Operating Officer.




51.2     The Lead Member RESOLVED to approve the dissolution of the Orbis Joint Committee and the establishment of the Orbis Partnership Oversight Board.




51.3     The Orbis Partnership was formed to create greater operational resilience to deliver value for money and improved service delivery for our customers. Orbis remains a key element of ESCC plans, and the recent changes represent an evolution of the Partnership that will enable the partners to shift focus fully onto the realisation of their individual council’s requirements, which has resulted in the need for proportionately scaled management and governance structures.
