2. The Council approves the Terms of Reference and Operating Agreement for the Committee as set out in Schedule 1 of the report.
3. The Council agrees to delegate the functions as set out in the Terms of Reference to the Transport Committee.
4. The Council appoints one Member, Councillor Burke and one substitute Member, Councillor Shah Wazir to the Transport Committee for 2019/2020.
