TitleThe Board Minutes
Date2008 -
DescriptionThe meetings of the Board take over the functions of both the Strategy and Policy Board, and the Finance and General Purposes Committee. These two committees were in themselves part of the changes made to Corporate Governance as a result of the Bide Report of 1994, which heralded the introduction of the two major committees reporting to Council: Strategy Policy Board (successor to the Officers Meetings) and Finance and General Purposes Committee, and also included a recommendation for a new management structure and the concept of 'lead officer' , all of which were adopted.

In 2008 both the Strategy and Policy Board and the Finance and General Purposes Committee were amalgamated to form The Board.
