A planned meeting of two councils to scrutinise the decision making process behind the changes to the Lowestoft Record Office will no longer officially involve both councils.

Papers ahead of Waveney District Council’s overview and scrutiny committee meeting on Thursday state the planned joint scrutiny has been replaced with a Suffolk County Council only scrutiny committee meeting.

The papers say: “This decision was taken because the remit for the review was purely to scrutinise the county council’s decision making process rather than the actual decision itself.”

The change will also allow all Waveney councillors to attend or submit questions alongside members of the public.

It is understood named persons involved in the decision, including Kate Chantry of Suffolk Record Office, and councillors Matthew Hicks, Tony Goldson, Colin Noble, and Paul West, have been requested to attend to answer any questions, but they do not have to attend.

The meeting will take place on Thursday, November 29, at 4.30pm at the council’s Riverside offices.
