Appointment of Honorary Aldermen
To pass the following resolution – HONORARY ALDERMEN That in pursuance of its powers under Section 249(1) of the Local Government Act 1972, the Council confers on Mr Brian Vincent, past Member of Plymouth City Council, the title of Honorary Alderman in recognition of his eminent services to the Council of the said City during the period when he was a Member of the Council.
Unfortunately, as the nominee passed away during the 2022/23 Municipal Year, the honour is recommended to be awarded posthumously as a tribute and a mark of respect to Mr Vincent’s family.
(Section 249 of the Local Government Act 1972 provides that the foregoing honour may be conferred by resolution of the Council passed by not less than two thirds of the members voting thereon at a meeting specially convened for the purpose.)
