Five improvement boards are to be set up at Kingston upon Hull City Council to help steer the council's recovery.
The boards will monitor progress in corporate governance, housing, change and performance management, resource management, and general service improvement.
The boards are to be established on the recommendation of Tony Allen, the envoy sent in by local government minister Nick Raynsford to advise ministers on the best way to engage with Hull.
Each will be headed by a corporate director and chaired by a cabinet member.
But councillors have raised concerns that the new structure could slow down improvement by adding an extra layer of bureaucracy to the decision making process. The boards are expected to be put in place next month.
