The Council resolved to approve the recommendations in the report that:
1) the Officer Delegations set out in Part 3 of the Council's Constitution be amended in line with Appendix A attached to this report and be adopted with immediate effect.
2) Any consequential amendments as a result of Appendix A be made to the Constitution
