The report of the Director of Central Services and Deputy Chief Executive recommended the cessation of the option to have a lease car for those who currently had a contractual entitlement to one.  In addition, it was recommended that as part of the Capital Plan process, consideration be given to the purchase of a small electric or hybrid vehicle as a ‘mitigation measure’ against health and safety risks arising as a consequence of the proposals.

 

RESOLVED:  That

 

(1)          the option of a lease car for those staff with an existing contractual right cease with immediate effect for those who had already signed a Variation to Contract;

 

(2)          the option to have a lease car for the two employees who still had leased cars cease on the dates on which their current arrangements terminated.  This would be reflected in tailored Variation to Contracts for the individuals concerned; and
