Delegated Decisions

Decisions taken by officers

Under The Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014, the Council is required to publish the notice of the actions taken by officers where they have exercised authority delegated to them by the Council's Constitution or a Committee of the Council, where the decision is to:

  • Grant a permission or licence
  • Affect the rights of an individual; or
  • Award a contact or incur expenditure that materially affects that relevant Government Bodies financial position.

The regulations do not require the publication of reports on all decisions. The related guidance, Open and Accountable Local Govenment, provides the following examples of decisions that should be published as follows:

  • Decisions to make Tree Preservation Orders
  • Building control decisions and notices
  • Decisions to give listed buildings consents.

The record of the decision must detail:

  • The decision taken and date
  • The reasons for the decision
  • Any alternative options considered and rejected
  • Any background documents.

The decision record would be kept for inspection and published here as soon as reasonably practicable after the date of the decision.
