Council Plan 2019/20 (LDR71)

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Council Plan accompanies the budget and sets a high-level framework for decision making throughout the financial year. It is a public-facing summary document that sits above more detailed annual Portfolio Agreements.

The Plan is developed by Cabinet, supported by officers, and is an opportunity to reflect on performance to date and policy priorities for the future. Priorities in the Plan are included by exception. The Plan doesn’t attempt to describe everything the Council does; only those things that are of crucial importance in a specific year.


The Cabinet has recommended to the Council Meeting the draft Council Plan for 2019/20 be approved.

Alternative options considered:


Reason Key: Policy Framework & Budget;

Equality and/or Environmental Impact Assessment: N/A

Decision Reference: CAB145

Declarations or conflicts of Interest: None

Forward Plan Reference: LDR71

Other reasons / organisations consulted

No specific consultation other than CRMG scrutiny, but priorities and delivery plans are informed by wider engagement and consultation processes, eg on MTFP proposals.
