Governance Review Panel

The first meeting of the Council's new Governance Review Panel took place today. The situation is that the Localism Act allows Councils to review how they are run and sets out three broad options, as follows:

1. An Executive model of governance (eg. a ten strong Cabinet).
2. A committee model of governance.
3. Some form of hybrid of the top two systems.

The Panel will carry out this review over the next six months, so that the Full Council can take a decision on how the next Council is structured.

I sit on the 15-strong Panel as the one MK member and was elected Vice-Chairman today.
