Further to minute 75 (31 January 2012), the Director of Law, HR and Asset Management reported upon the progress that had been made by the Corporate Governance Committee and submitted details of matters considered and decisions that had been taken at its meeting on 8 February 2012. However, the Corporate Governance Committee had subsequently been disbanded as the Wirral/LGA Improvement Board was considered to be the most appropriate vehicle to take the improvement agenda forward.


The Improvement Board was a partnership between the Council and the Local Government Association and the Director outlined its role and membership. Its recommendations were referred to the Cabinet for decision and its proceedings were on the Council’s website. Every third meeting would be held in public and the Director commented that its first public meeting would be held on 30 March 2012.


Resolved –


(1)  That the progress made so far in addressing the findings of the AKA Report on Corporate Governance be noted.


(2)  That the Director of Law, HR and Asset Management be requested to keep the Committee up to date by reporting on the improvements being made to strengthen the Council’s Corporate Governance arrangements.
