Draft Council Plan 2021/22 pdf icon PDF 109 KB

To consider a report of the Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Devolution, and Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Resources, Commissioning and Governance

 

The report sets out the draft Council Plan for 2021/22. 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 annual (detailed) 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 does not attempt to describe everything the Council does; only those things that are of crucial importance in a specific year. 

 

The Scrutiny Committee is recommended to:-

 

·         Consider and comment on the draft 2021/22 Council Plan and Equality Impact Assessment; and

·         Note the key issues and processes outlined in the report.
