The Chairman welcomed everyone to the meeting. There were no apologies, nor notices.
Mr Hansen explained that, because of the level of technical detail involved with the tenders, the assessment process had taken longer than expected and therefore the agenda papers were not completed in time to give Councillors 2 clear working days to review them. He further noted that due to a written commitment given to tenderers, a decision was required from the Tenders Committee for release today.
Councillor Wilson moved to waive the requirement of Standing Order 2.12.4, “an agenda detailing the business to be brought before that meeting together with relevant attachments must be received by every member not less than two clear working days before the day appointed for the meeting ...”
