As the Council pays the largest proportion of
the Internal Drainage Board funding based on the area of land, it
is essential that the Council's interests are sufficiently
represented through its appointment to IDBs.
Such appointments also ensure that the Council is involved in any decisions that may affect the people of the Borough.
To approve the following appointments of
representatives of Doncaster Council on outside bodies with
immediate effect (terms of office to run until May 2021):
Black Drain Internal Drainage Board
Adam Porter, Flood Risk Engineer (DMBC Officer) - replaces Pat Hagan (DMBC Officer)
Chris Crowe, Operations Manager (Coal Authority) - replaces Dave Ridge (DMBC Officer)
Danvum Drainage Commissioners Board
Chris Crowe, Operations Manager (Coal Authority) - replaces Barry Roughley (DMBC Officer)
Option 1 - To appoint Council representatives
to the Black Drain IDB and Danvum Drainage Commissioners Board
Option 2 - To not appoint Council representatives on the Black Drain IDB and Danvum Drain Drainage Commissioners Board. The option not to appoint to these bodies would mean a loss of opportunity for the Council in lobbying, decision making, representing the Council's views and influencing future policy.
