Part 4 - Rules of procedure

Below are the rules of procedure.

23.1       Suspension

Any of these Procedural Standing Orders, except this Procedural Standing Order and Procedural Standing Order 10.9 and those relating to a Member’s right to have their individual vote recorded and the requirement to sign the minutes at the next suitable meeting, may be suspended on consideration of a motion for which notice has been given or, if the motion is put without notice, when at least half of the total number of Members of the Council, that is 27 Members, are present. The rule can only be suspended while the meeting is in progress. Suspension shall last only for so long as the matter, for which Procedural Standing Orders were suspended, is under discussion.

23.2       Amendment

Any motion to add to, vary or revoke these Procedural Standing Orders, other than a motion to adopt a recommendation of the Cabinet or other Council body, will, when proposed and seconded, stand adjourned without discussion to be dealt with at the next ordinary meeting of the Council.
