Agenda item

Annual Constitutional Review

Report of the Clerk to the Joint Committee.


The Clerk to the Joint Committee referred Members to the report within the agenda papers outlining the Terms of Reference for the Central Durham Crematorium Joint Committee (for copy see file of minutes). 


Members were reminded that following audit reviews it was recommended that the Joint Committee undertake an annual review of the Terms of Reference and update as necessary.  It was explained that there were no proposed changes to the Terms of Reference at this time.


Councillor D Brown noted that there were several references to the former City of Durham Council and asked whether this should be amended to reflect that, following Local Government Reorganisation in 2009, Durham County Council was one of the two constituent Local Authorities represented on the Joint Committee.  The Clerk to the Joint Committee noted that those references were to previous arrangements and an Agreement between the former City of Durham Council and Spennymoor Town Council.  She added that the Agreement as set out at Appendix 2 superseded previous agreements.




That the Members of the Joint Committee note the Review of the Terms of Reference and reapprove the Constitution as set out in Appendix 2 to the report.
