This Order amends the Aberdeen and Grampian Tourist Board Scheme Order 1995 (S.I. 1995/1879) (“the principal Order” ) and the Aberdeen and Grampian Tourist Board Scheme 1995 (“the scheme” ) set out in the schedule to the principal Order.
This Order substitutes for references in the principal Order and the scheme to the local government area of City of Aberdeen references to the local government area of Aberdeen City to reflect the change of name of that area on 9th May 1995 by resolution of The City of Aberdeen Council (in consequence now The Aberdeen City Council) under section 23 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 (articles 2 and 3).
Paragraph 4(3)(b) of the scheme provides that there may be appointed to membership of the Board the council for any local government area lying within the area of the Board. This Order substitutes therefor in relation to each such council provision for the appointment of persons, not exceeding 6 in number, to be nominated by such council to be persons representative of the council on the Board (article 4(a)).
The Order also provides that—
(a)each member of the Board and of the controlling body shall have one vote (articles 4(b) and 5);
(b)the appointment of the first members of the controlling body of the Board by the Secretary of State shall terminate 28 days after the date of the first general meeting of the Board (article 5);
(c)decisions of the Board and of the controlling body of the Board shall be by majority (article 6); and
(d)in the case of equality of votes the member presiding shall have a second or casting vote (except where the matter relates to the appointment of a member of the Board or of the controlling body of the Board or a member to any office or committee which is to be resolved by lot) (article 6).
