Cabinet considered a report on nominations to Category 1 outside organisations.
Category 1 appointments had been allocated to Cabinet to make. These appointments were to top level strategic organisations at national, regional and local level. Details of the appointments being considered were detailed in the Schedule attached to the Report.
Appointments would be made for the duration of the Council, which was 2019-2023, although it may sometimes be necessary or desirable for them to be reviewed during that time in order to take into account changes for vacancies that may arise.
The following amendments were proposed to the Schedule attached to the Report:
· deletion of Plus Dane (Cheshire) Housing Association Ltd as there was no longer a requirement to appoint to this organisation;
· addition of Alderley Park Ltd and Alderley Park Holdings Ltd to the Schedule, with the appointment of Councillor C Browne to these organisations;
· the appointments to The Silk Heritage Trust to be Councillors B Puddicombe, L Smetham and L Braithwaite.
RESOLVED: That Cabinet

4 the appointments to The Silk Heritage Trust to be Councillors B Puddicombe, L Smetham and L Braithwaite;
5 subject to 2, 3 and 4 above, approval be given to the appointment of the representatives shown on the schedule to this report and that the appointments will subsist until such time as representation is reviewed following the election of the new Council in 2023;
6 the appointments take immediate effect; and
