The Constitution - Part One - Chapter 8 - Non-Executive (Regulatory) Functions

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
f) Other miscellaneous functions.

8.2  The Council considers that these functions can best be performed by regulatory committees, to be called ordinary committees, with full delegated powers from the Council to determine matters within their remit, and grants these powers by virtue of this Constitution.


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.

Terms of Reference

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.

Delegations to Officers

8.7  Every Ordinary Committee will be empowered to delegate any of its functions to officers of the Council. A list of all such delegations will be maintained by the Chief Executive Officer. The list will be incorporated in Part Four of this Constitution and will be kept available for public inspection, without fee, at the Civic Offices, Civic Way, Fareham, during normal office hours.
