Scheme of Delegation 
 
The power to delegate functions is set out in the Local Government Act 1972 s 101. 
The intention of the delegation scheme is to allow the Council to act with all reasonable 
speed. Decisions should be taken at the most suitable level. Therefore, the Clerk is given 
powers over the day-to-day administration of the Council or committees to decide matters 
within the Terms of Reference and matters of major policy should be recommended to the 
Full Council. 
Whilst delegation is necessary it is the Council’s policy that members and the press and 
public should have the fullest information. Therefore, the Clerk reports all major decisions 
taken under delegated powers at the next Council or Committee meeting.
