To review any outstanding items from the previous minutes.

Additional documents:


Councillor Brown summarised the Matters arising from the meeting of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee held on 20 March 2023, noting that of the thirteen listed, twelve had been marked complete.  It was confirmed that the Strategic Director of Communities and former Director of Legal and Democratic Services, had reviewed Member concerns regarding gas-related complaints and that they did not relate to compliance issues.

Councillor Davis questioned that item 3.3, the invitation of Affinity Water to a meeting of the Committee, had been completed.  The Councillor pointed to the mutually exclusive positions of the two parties, Affinity Water could only attend remotely, while the Committee could only meet in person.  Councillor Davis suggested that if the position did not change, the Council should write a letter noting the Council’s deep dissatisfaction, particularly given it had been Affinity Water that had initiated contact and offered to attend with the Committee duly accommodating in two meetings.  Councillor Brown requested that a letter first be written to the Chief Executive of Affinity Water requesting once more that a person from Affinity Water attend the Committee in person and, if they were not able to attend, that the Committee’s deep dissatisfaction be expressed in a further letter to the Chief Executive of Affinity Water.

Members reiterated their wish to extend an invite for Southeast Coast Ambulance and Surrey Fire & Rescue.

Resolved that the report be noted.
