Chief Executive Reports On How Busy Our Officers Have Been

On West Lancs Now  Kim Webber writes “The last few weeks have been busy, with a continued focus on election related work, and follow up to decisions made at the last Council meeting in February 2017. Preparation is also now in hand for the final Council meeting of this municipal year, on Wednesday 26 April 2017, and planning has commenced for the Annual Council meeting on Wednesday 17 May 2017.

“In addition, on Wednesday 29 March 2017 I was delighted to join other Council, Clinical Commissioning Group and health colleagues for a Well North visit to Bromley by Bow. Hosted by Lord Andrew Mawson, Executive Chair of Well North, it was fascinating to visit some of the flagship projects in London, and talk to those involved about their experiences.

“On Thursday 30 March 2017, I held my regular election planning meeting with Terry Broderick, Borough Solicitor, Matthew Jones, Legal and Member Services Manager, Tom Lynan, Electoral and Administration Services Manager and Susanne Malmgren, Senior Electoral and Administration Officer. This is a busy time for the elections team, and I am grateful for their continued efforts, together with the other staff in the Council who get involved in election related duties at this time of year.

“On Friday 31 March 2017, together with John Harrison, Director of Development and Regeneration, John Nelson, Head of Leisure and Cultural Services and Ian Gill, Deputy Director of Development and Regeneration, I met with Mike Maguire, Chief Officer at NHS West Lancashire CCG and colleagues from West Lancashire CCG to talk about the partnership work we are involved in together, and to explore opportunities for furthering this.

“On Monday 3 April, I was pleased to hold one of my regular meetings with staff who have recently joined the Council. It was rewarding to hear of their very positive experiences of their first weeks with the Council.

“On Wednesday 5 April, I chaired the periodic Preparedness meeting, involving officers from across the Council. My thanks go to Andrew Hill, Environmental Protection and Community Safety Manager and Jenny Jones, Emergency Planning Officer, in particular for their work in keeping our emergency and continuity plans and procedures up to date. Thanks also to those officers in each of our services who are critical to developing and delivering these plans.

“On Thursday 6 April, together with Tom Lynan, Susanne Malmgren and Mark Leather, Administration and Electoral Services Assistant, I hosted the briefing session for candidates and agents for the elections to Lancashire County Council on 4 May 2017.

“May I take this opportunity to wish you a very happy Easter”
