    Mr Nick Hughes introduced the report and made the following comments:

     

    ·  The Panel would need to agree whether to conduct a review of the council’s coastal waste practices;

     

    ·  The review could be conducted through setting up a coastal waste practices review working party with an agreed membership to lead on this piece of work;

    Members made comments as follows:

     

    ·  There was a high level of member interest in conducting this scrutiny review;

    ·  The working party to be set up should have no more than five members;

    In response to Member comments Mr Hughes and The Panel Chair said the following:

     

    ·  A review of the practice of household bins was a huge area that would be resource intensive;

    ·  However dog waste bins along the costal areas would be integrated in this reviewed that has been agreed by the Panel;

    ·  If Members wanted to conduct the issue regarding household bins, then this issue would have to be prioritised according to the scoring matrix that was used to prioritise other scrutiny topics that were identified by the Panel as detailed in Annex 2 to the work programme report.

     

    Members agreed the following:

     

    1.  To conduct a review of the council’s coastal waste practices;
