The committee considered the Councillor competency framework and its suitability for both authorities.
Officers outlined the purpose of the framework and drew specific attention to the following points:
· The purpose of the updated framework was to make it easier to implement
· Commitment statements are easier to digest and apply
· The statements were simple and direct, outlining the expected behaviours of councillors
The committee agreed with the simple, common-sense approach and were content with the framework. It was therefore
RESOLVED that the Councillor competency framework be approved.
