Archived Committees

(Discontinued) Audit Committee

This committee was discontinued at the end of the 2014/15 municipal year. As the council moved to a committee system style of governance at the start of municipal year 2015/16, this committee's functions were merged with the Standards Committee. The purpose of the Audit Committee was to provide independent assurance of the adequacy of the risk management framework and the associated control environment, independent scrutiny of the authority’s financial and non-financial performance to the extent that it affects Fylde Borough Council’s exposure to risk and weakens the control environment, and to oversee the financial reporting process.

(Discontinued) Cabinet

The Cabinet was the part of the Council that was responsible for most day-to-day decisions. The Cabinet was made up of the Leader and six other Councillors, known as Cabinet Members. Cabinet was discontinued at the end of the 2014/15 municipal year, when the council moved to a committee system style of governance at the start of municipal year 2015/16.

(Discontinued) Community Focus Scrutiny Committee

(Discontinued) Standards Committee

This committee was discontinued at the end of the 2014/15 municipal year.

The Standards Committee is therefore responsible for maintaining high standards of ethical conduct by members of the borough and parish councils. The Standards Committee is assisted by "independent persons", appointed under the Localism Act 2011. Independent persons do not investigate complaints or form part of the Standards Committee, but the Monitoring Officer and a member who has been the subject of a complaint can consult them. Fylde Council appointed a number of independent persons jointly with Blackpool Council.

2004-2015 Public Protection Committee

All the agendas and minutes of Public Protection Committee meetings held between December 2004 and the end of the 2014/15 municipal year. The public protection committee determined some of the more complex applications for taxi licences and a number of other licenses that the council could issue.

2005-2015 Council meetings

All the agendas and minutes from Council meetings held between the start of the 2005/06 municipal year and the end of the 2014/15 municipal year. By law, there must be an annual meeting of the council, which is held in May. The May meeting signifies the start of the Municipal Year and is largely ceremonial with the appointment of the Mayor. In election years, the May meeting would also appoint a Leader of the Council, set the meeting calendar and establish the committee membership. The council also has scheduled ordinary meetings throughout the year and can hold extraordinary meetings. Meetings of the council are often referred to as "full council". The Mayor chairs the meetings and all members of the council can attend them. Although the Cabinet takes most of the day-to-day decisions in the running of the authority, the meetings of the Council remain the ultimate policy making body for Fylde Borough Council.
