Report from the Cabinet


The Leader of the Council provided the Council with an update of business considered by Cabinet on 12 September 2018 (for copy see file of Minutes).


Councillor Hopgood asked whether the Leader could confirm if there would  be any increase in the  financial contribution that Durham paid as a result of the changes to the North East Combined Authority (NECA) following the creation of a new North of Tyne Mayoral Authority, and if so when and how Members would be consulted on the proposals.


Councillor Henig, Leader of the Council replied that changes to the NECA were in the process of taking place and were expected to be formalised within the next few weeks.


Councillor Hopgood asked whether Members would be advised of any additional costs and if so, when.


Councillor Henig replied that any budget proposals for the NECA costs would be subject to the normal budget process which would include the scrutiny process.
