Decision details

To approve a Section 91 Order for Kingskerswell Parish Council

Decision Maker: Managing Director

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


A decision was made by the Managing Director following a request from the Clerk and remaining members of Kingskerswell Parish Council, to issue a Section 91 Order in line with Section 6, Schedule 1 of Schedule 6, delegation ref: 1A3 of the Council's Constitution and pursuant to the Local Government Act 1972. The Parish Council is currently inquorate with only two remaining councillors, but has five residents of the parish wishing to be co-opted onto the Council. It was therefore agreed that temporary appointments would be made to enable co-option of sufficient members to make the Parish Council quorate again.

Alternative options considered:

As Teignbridge District Councillors with a link to Kingskerswell were willing to be appointed to act at a meeting of the Parish Council on 12 April in order to make the Parish Council quorate, it was considered appropriate to make the Order to enable and facilitate continued governance of the parish.
