Question from: County Councillor Roger Williams Subject: New Improvement Boards
Will the Minority Parties or individual Councillors have access to the External advisors to the New Improvement Boards?
And if not will resources be made available to Minority Parties or individual Councillors to commission external advice?
Response by the Portfolio Holder:
The External Advisors will predominantly work with the Service Improvement Boards to help drive forward change and when required will attend the Corporate Improvement Board.
There will be the opportunity for External Advisors to be invited by appointment to the Group Leaders meetings chaired by the Leader of the Council. It is envisaged this would be periodic rather than monthly.
