This is a new course designed for both clerks and councillors. The tabling of written reports to accompany agenda items is an increasingly common method of ensuring that councillors not only take fully informed decisions, but also that there is an audit trail showing that they have acted properly when taking such decisions. Reports also provide a snapshot of the council’s thinking at the time that proposals were considered and are also a useful tool for considering confidential matters properly.
