8.1 Schedule 1 of the Local Authorities (Functions and Responsibilities) (England) Regulations 2000 makes provision for functions that are not to be the responsibility of the Council's Executive, under the following headings:
a) Functions relating to development control;
b) Licensing and registration functions;
c) Functions relating to health and safety at work;
d) Functions relating to elections;
e) Functions relating to the name and status of areas and individuals; and

8.3 At its Annual Meeting each year, the Council will establish and appoint members to the committees referred to in Part Two of this Constitution. It will also appoint such other committees as it decides are necessary to undertake its non-executive functions in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Act 2000. All appointments to ordinary committees will be made in accordance with the rules of proportionality set out in the Local Government and Housing Act 1989.
8.4 The Council may at any time, or on a recommendation from the Executive, and having considered the views of the appropriate Scrutiny Panel and other committees of the Council, terminate the appointment of any ordinary committee or establish such other committees as it deems appropriate. All appointments to such other committees will be made in accordance with the proportionality rules contained in the Local Government and Housing Act 1989.
8.5 The Terms of Reference and extent of delegations by the Council to ordinary committees will be in accordance with the provisions set out in Part Two of this Constitution.
8.6 The roles of the Chairmen of ordinary committees will be as described in Appendices 7 to 11 of this Part of the Constitution.
