Portfolio Performance and Resources - Draft Portfolio Agreement 2020/21 pdf icon PDF 225 KB

To consider a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place)

 

Policy priorities for 2020/21 were set out within the Council Plan, which was adopted at the Budget Council Meeting ibn 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 Covid-19) 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.

 

The report presents the draft 2020/21 agreements for the Economy and Regeneration Portfolio for consideration and comment by the Committee.

 

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