Portfolio Performance and Resources - Draft Portfolio Agreement 2020/21 pdf icon PDF 227 KB

To consider a joint report of the Corporate Directors for Corporate & Support Services and Place Management & Regeneration.

 

Policy priorities for 2020/21 were set out within the Council Plan, which was adopted at the Budget Council Meeting in February. This incorporates the shared outcomes from the Borough Plan alongside specific priorities of the Cabinet. These priorities, re-shaped to take account of One Stockport and Building Back Better (building on Covid19), are articulated within the Portfolio Agreements, which form the basis for regular in-year reporting. Portfolio and Corporate Performance and Resource Reports (PPRRs and CPRRs) will assess progress against key objectives, priorities, outcomes and budgets, enabling Scrutiny Committees to hold the Cabinet to account and for the Cabinet to identify current and future risks to delivery. 

 

This report presents the draft 2020/21 Agreements for the Adult Care and Health Portfolio for consideration and comment by the Committee.

 

The Scrutiny Committee is recommended to review and comment on the draft Portfolio Agreements.

Impact of COVID-19 on Homelessness and Temporary Accommodation pdf icon PDF 192 KB

To consider a report of the Strategic Housing Lead.

 

The Covid Crisis which led to the lockdown of much of society at the end of March 2019 posed significant challenges to homelessness services across the Country.  With an initial focus on ensuring the safety of temporary accommodation residents and responding to a call from the Government to offer accommodation to all rough sleepers, the Council and Stockport Homes Group (SHG) worked closely alongside partners from across Greater Manchester (GM) and the Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to ensure an effective and co-ordinated approach.

 

This report provides a summary of the initial impact of the Crisis and the response within the Borough, and outlines some of the longer-term legacy issues anticipated, particularly in relation to people falling into financial difficulties and the potential increased incidence of domestic abuse.  Key areas of work that were underway at the time the Crisis started, such as reviewing the Council’s homelessness strategy are also again taking centre stage as people move back towards a more normalised environment, and these are also referenced within the report.

 

The Scrutiny Committee is recommended to comment on and note the report.
