Those LEP Board jobs …

“Board Members must declare any involvement with any of the delivery partners or roles or interests with beneficiaries and operate in accordance with the Nolan Principals of public life and the company’s Articles of Association.

This will involve taking no part in any decision votes where an interest exists. The adoption of the Nolan Principals ensures full openness and integrity in the way the Board sets its priorities.

These roles are un-remunerated. Expenses are only paid for exceptional expenditure for LEP commitments outside our area.

The only problem is – we don’t get to know who voted on what, who declared an interest and why and who abstained – as the public record of meetings ( notes rather than minutes) do not record them.

Not to mention that agendas are not explicit – try to find the agenda item or minutes of the 26% salary increase for the LEP CEO – good luck and good hunting!
