The Staff Appeals Panel is made up of a list
of 18 members of the County Council, not being members of the
Cabinet, from which are drawn members to form Boards of Appeal to
hear those investigations and cases and Appeals set out in the
Scheme of Delegation in the Constitution.
Although the agendas of Boards of Appeal are
published to give notice of the meeting, the reports and minutes
are not made available to the public due to the confidential nature
of their business.
Boards of Appeal are not open to the public. However,
due the current public health emergency and in accordance with regulations,
the County Council is, until further notice, holding virtual
committee meetings with councillors attending and participating
remotely via conference calls. In order
to comply with the regulations which require a public declaration
of the members present in a virtual meeting, the first
non-confidential part of any Board of Appeal will therefore be
webcast to allow press and public access.
Services if any further information is required.
