  1. That the proposed Induction Programme attached as an Appendix A to report EFA/042/17 be recommended to Essex Fire Authority for adoption.
  2.

The Sub-Group considered report EFA/043/17 by the Acting Chief Fire Officer which presented a report completed by the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives (SOLACE) outlining the activities and outcomes from the two phases of Member and Officer development facilitated by them following publication of the Lucas Review in September 2015.

The report was noted as a positive public record of how members had taken the opportunity to develop the political leadership of Essex Fire Authority, and the Chairman commended those who had made the considerable time commitment required to attend the workshops.  It was agreed that Appendix 1 (which provided attendance details) was superfluous, and should be removed.

Resolved:

That the report by SOLACE attached as Appendix 1 to report EFA/043/17 be noted as a positive public record of how members have taken the opportunity to develop the political leadership of Essex Fire Authority, and referred to Essex Fire Authority for consideration at its next meeting on 12 April 2017.
