Five councillors signed the Call-in form requesting that the decision taken by the Cabinet Member for Culture Leisure and Sport (acting on behalf of the Cabinet Member for Traffic and Transportation at the time) in respect of item 5 on the Traffic and Transportation agenda on 10 March 2016 be called in for scrutiny.  The decision related to the item entitled  "London Road Proposals TRO 12/2016".

The Monitoring Officer ruled that this was a valid call-in. 

 

The decision today is for the panel to determine whether the Cabinet Member's decision has been taken without adequate information.

 

If the panel is satisfied that the decision was not taken without adequate information to enable the Cabinet Member to reach her decision, then no further action is required and the matter ends here.

 

If the panel is not satisfied on this ground, the panel may refer the matter back to the Cabinet Member who took the original decision for reconsideration.  The panel must give its reasons if it refers the matter back.
