DECISIONS

Reasons

 

12.3     The Covid-19 situation continues to require decisions to be taken at short notice.  Although arrangements are in place for Lead Member decisions to be taken virtually it may, in certain situations, not be possible or prudent to wait for the Lead Member to take the decisions at a formal meeting.   The current delegation will be extended to July 2021 to ensure that provision continues to be in place to provide for essential urgent executive decisions to be taken in response to Covid-19.
