Decision Made

1. That the appointment of Councillor Craig Rivett, Councillor Maurice Cook, Councillor James Mallinder, Councillor David Ritchie and Councillor Letitia Smith as the Cabinet Members for the Harbour Management Committee be approved. 


2. That the recommendations of the Appointment Panel be approved and Alistair MacFarlane be appointed as a Co-opted Member of the HMC for a term of 3 years, David Gledhill and Richard Musgrove be appointed as Co-opted Members for the term of 2 years and Mike Pickles be appointed as a Co-Opted Member of the HMC for a term of 1 year. 


3. That on the appointment of the above Members, the Harbour Management Committee be hereby established on 1 June 2021 and the terms of office for the Co-opted members referred to in recommendation 2 above also commence on the same date.


4. That with effect from 1 June 2021, the Southwold Harbour Lands Joint Committee be disestablished.

Reason for Decision
Cabinet was asked to approve the appointment to the HMC of the East Suffolk Councillors referred to in paragraph 2.1 of report ES/0774 and to accept the recommendations of the Appointments Panel referred to in paragraph 2.4 of report ES/0774.  
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected
The Harbour Management Committee must have members appointed to it, in accordance with its agreed composition, or else it cannot come into existence and carry out business. Therefore, not to make appointments is not a realistic option and with that in mind, no other options were considered.
