Reasons for the decision:

The main objective is for a Council nominee to represent the interests of the Council.

Alternative options considered:

Not appointing a TDC representative to executive appointed outside bodies. This would not have been an appropriate decision because Full Council agreed that the Council’s interests would better be served by engaging in activities with Outside Bodies in order to enhance the public interests of Thanet District.
