Cabinet Decision Contrary to Budget and Policy Framework

5 December 2001


The cabinet decision to reduce the support to economic development projects by £70,000 was contrary to the policy framework and contrary or not wholly in accordance with the budget, as a reduction in the general budget heading such as that for economic development projects lies outside the council's agreed budget and therefore would require full council agreement to any reduction.

On being put to the vote, the motion was carried on the casting vote of the mayor.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020. You can have your say on the new boundaries by clicking the button below, which will take you to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's consultation.
