Executive Functions

Executive functions (those performed by the manager by order) include decisions in relation to staff, acceptance of tenders, making contracts, fixing rents, making lettings, and decisions on applications for planning permissions, outline permissions or approvals. Executive functions are, in fact, defined as all of the functions of the local authority except those which are, in fact, defined as reserved functions. As mentioned already, the manager, even in the performance of executive functions, operates under the general supervision of the elected members.
