The Council considered a report on the Fundamental Review of Outside Bodies.

The Group were thanked for the work undertaken in order to provide a sound basis for any future review.  It was noted that some of the bodies included were no longer relevant and these would be addressed through any future review.  The Group had been a good example of cross-party working.

(ii)        That the Outside Body Task and Finish Group reviews the list of Outside Bodies in 2021 to take into account any changes and to review how well the revised list is operating.


(iii)       That the Chairman of the Task and Finish Group works with officers to find an appropriate mechanism to enable members to upload updates on outside Bodies to the Dorset Council intranet pages.
