Councillor David Mellen, Leader of the Council, proposed the report setting out the responses to the consultation on a Proposal to establish the East Midlands Combined County Authority and the final Proposal, which Council was asked to approve for submission to the Secretary of State.  The report was seconded by Councillor Adele Williams.


Resolved to:

(2)  note how the Proposal had been amended to take account of the results of the consultation, other engagement activity and recent developments as set out in the report and in Appendices 2, 3 and 4 to the report;


(3)  delegate authority to the Chief Executive to submit the Proposal to the Secretary of State in consultation with the Chief Executives of the other Constituent Councils once the Levelling-Up and Regeneration Bill has received Royal Assent and the relevant provisions come into force;


(4)  delegate authority to the Chief Executive to approve any typographical or technical amendments to the final Proposal which the Chief Executives of the other three Councils also agree on, on behalf of Nottingham City Council, prior to submission; and


(5)  note that a further report will be brought back to Council in due course to consent to the relevant Statutory Instrument that will formally establish the EMCCA in due course.
