The Council considered a report which advised that in terms of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, Section 35, if a Councillor fails to attend a meeting for a continuous period of 6 months then they cease to be a Councillor unless prior approval to the absence has been taken by Council.
The Council approved the absence from Council business of a Councillor due to health related issues until 27 June 2020, or until their return to business, whichever is the earlier.
