Councillor Competency Framework


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.
