Under Schedule 28 of the Greater London Authority Act 1999 (“The Act”) the Mayor is to appoint the Members of the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) including two direct Mayoral appointments appointed by the Mayor on his own nomination. The Act also sets out the circumstances in which the Mayor may terminate an appointment. On 31 October 2011 the appointment of Simon Walsh, as a direct Mayoral appointment, to LFEPA was terminated with immediate effect. An open and transparent recruitment process was put into place to fill the vacancy created by the termination. The recruitment panel has recommended that Colin Tandy be appointed as a member of LFEPA.
