The Council Plan sets out the full list of the Council’s seven priorities for the period 2019-23 and on individual pages the detailed sub-priorities for significant action during 2019-20.  These are the sub priorities where we will make a bigger impact this year.  All of our priorities remain important but in any one year a number of them will stand out for special attention.

The Chairman is the ceremonial civic head of the Council.  The Chairman must be a serving County Councillor, but should remain politically impartial in the discharge of their role.  A Chairman must not be a member of the Executive.

The Chairman is elected at the Annual Meeting of the Council which is held in May each year.

The role can be very demanding and the Chairman normally attends in excess of 400 – 500 events in the year.

Councillor Bateman’s consort will be her husband Councillor Haydn Bateman.  The Chairman has a key role in the Council including:-

  • being the politically impartial civic leader of Flintshire and to uphold the democratic values of the Council
  • promoting the objectives and services of the County Council and raising the profile of Flintshire itself
  • acting as an ambassador for the County Council and Flintshire
  • fostering community identity and pride
  • recognition of individuals and organisations who have brought success to the County

The Chairman has other responsibilities such as:-

  • presiding over meetings of the Council to ensure they are conducted efficiently and with regard to the rights of Councillors and the interests of the community
  • attending Civic and Ceremonial events
  • inviting individuals and representatives of organisations to events at County Hall and other venues

The Council is comprised of Councillors elected every four/five
years. Each Councillor is democratically accountable to the
residents of their electoral division as well as all of those who live
in. The overriding duty of Councillors is to the whole community,
but they have a special duty to their constituents, including those
that did not vote for them.
