This ODR is to confirm the appointment of Pat Hayes as Non-Executive Director (NED) to the Board of BCP FuturePlaces Ltd as an urgent decision taken by the Chief Executive of BCP Council under Part 3 (Responsibility for Functions), Delegations to Chief Officers, line 68, in the revised Constitution and as delegated by Cabinet on 7 September 2022.

Reasons for the decision:

Further to the appointment of Lord Kerslake as Chair of the company board, the Chief Executive is now asked to approve the appointment of two NEDs to the Board of FuturePlaces.

The selection process has identified one candidate to-date and there is a need to move quickly in offering the position to ensure that we do not lose this quality candidate or incur additional cost in undertaking a further recruitment process.

The recruitment process for the remaining position is currently underway in conjunction with the Independent Chair.

These positions are essential to enable the Leader of the Council to resign as Director of the company in line with the original intention as set out in the company Business Plan and approved by Cabinet and Council.
