Notice of Motion - Co-operative Councils Innovation Network

Decision Maker: Full Council

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Council considered a motion concerning the Town Council joining the Co-operative Council’s Innovation Network, the motion being proposed by Cllr D Enright and seconded by Cllr R Smith on the evening.


There was agreement that the network appeared to offer benefits to members, but these might be more suited to principal Councils. The benefits at town and parish Council level were uncertain and if membership was taken there would need to be a review of the interactions from the network to inform debate on the issue in the future.




1.      That, Witney Town Council becomes a member of the Co-operative Council’s Innovation Network, at a cost of £500.

2.      That this be funded from rolling capital

3.      That the membership be reviewed during the budget-setting process to confirm the benefits it brings to the Town Council.
