Appointments to outside bodies

Councillors exercise community leadership and facilitate partnership working at a local level, by representing the council and their constituents on outside bodies, such as local partnership panels, local management boards and, for example, the Suffolk Health and Well-being Board.

Appointments of councillors to outside bodies are made by both Cabinet and Full Council.

East Suffolk Council will appoint representatives to outside bodies at the first meeting of Full Council and the first meeting of Cabinet in each municipal year.
