Leave as three tier, or change to two tier?

by timhill on 3 November, 2009

I am pleased to say, I will be able to take part in the debate – there are enough councillors having to declare an interest in the matter. 

I expect to receive the papers on this tonight and at that time we will be able to understand the Officers recommendation in full, and of course this will take into account the responses to the consultation.

Last night there was a briefing to Members, from those that support the current organisation structure, and those who support the proposed two tier structure. Both camps gave impressive cases but I remain unconvinced that the case for change is sufficiently strong for the disruption the re-organisation will cause to several years of pupils.

The Council’s Executive meeting is on the 11th November, when this will be discussed and decided upon, and in the event the decision is to change it will then go to Full Council for further discussion on Monday 16th November. As soon as the papers are available I will try to place them on here.
