    Historically all important documents were signed by the incumbent Mayor. When was it changed to the Leader of the Council ?

    I hate to Labour a point but without designated parking where would Councillors and delegates have parked? Drive around for hours to look for a place to park or put them by the Bingo hall and make them walk in the rain?

    A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.

    A good question, and Wrexham Council have said: “The document signed is an operational document between the Council and the Portuguese Government. As such it is an executive decision. The Mayor is the Civic Head which is a non-political role with no ability to take decisions binding on the Council. In order to bind the Local Authority it needed to be signed by the duly elected Leader of the Council as Chair of the Executive Board.”

    Now they’re unable to walk in the rain? Good grief, our councillors must be delicate little flowers. If they’re not capable of planning ahead to allow enough time to find a parking spot for a pre-arranged photo opportunity, then I dread to think how badly they make plans on behalf of the council.

    I wonder how the photographer managed to get there on time, or the journalist. Do they have designated parking?

    How would Councillors get on if they had an appointment at the local Hospital. I would feel sorry for them driving around for hours looking for a place to park.

    Was this agreement to enter into this binding arrangement with the Portuguese Government brought before the Executive Board. I may be wrong , but I have not seen a web cast with this being reported on.

    Surely they’d go private, where there are always plenty of parking spaces.

    Feb 2017 – http://moderngov.wrexham.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=129&MId=3396 bizarrely item 105 on that although there are not 100 odd items!

    This is the PDF report that was approved http://moderngov.wrexham.gov.uk/documents/s7535/Item%209.pdf that also contains a copy of the Protocol

    Interestingly that report reads: “Subject to the approval of the Executive Board, the Co-operation Protocol will be signed at a formal ceremony in Wrexham by the Mayor of Wrexham on behalf of the Council and a representative of the Portuguese Government.”

    Surely the Mayor being the Civic Head of the Council should sign the document. It has been passed by the Executive Board and the Mayor is the representative of the town.
