    To consider the attached report of the Head of Governance.


    The Solicitor to the Council presented the report to the Committee. The report provided members with the actions required should the recently introduced Business and Planning Bill (introduced to support economic recovery and growth as the UK recovered from the disruption caused by Covid-19) receive Royal Assent and Pavement Licences be introduced.


    As the draft legislation made no reference as to whether Pavement Licences would be a function to be discharged by the Executive or Council and to ensure that the functions could be discharged in a timely way, it was necessary to request the Regulatory Committee to make delegations to officers should the Bill, when law, make Pavement Licences a Council function rather than an Executive function.



    RESOLVED:       That on the Business and Planning Bill becoming law, the following officers be authorised to exercise the powers and functions of the Council set out in the table below


    Delegation to:      Head of Regulatory Services

                                Public Protection Manager
