Issue for Decision
the Strategic Plan, which has been refreshed for 2018-19.
That the Strategic Plan 2015-20, 2018-19 Update is recommended to Full Council for approval.
Reasons for Recommendation
Each Service Committee has considered changes to the specific areas within the Strategic Plan relevant to the committee. The suggestions for changes for each committee were then compiled into one document for the Policy and Resources Committee to agree a final draft and recommend it to council.
meeting of 14 February 2018, the Policy and Resources Committee requested that
the word ‘Green’ be added to the ‘Safe and Clean’ priority, and that the Chief
Executive make changes to the plan to reflect this in consultation with the
Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee. The requested
changes have been made and the updated Strategic Plan is attached as Appendix
Alternatives Considered and Why Not Recommended
The Policy and Resources Committee could have decided not to update the plan. However this would mean the current Strategic Plan would be out of date, and would not reflect changes to legislation, progress on policies and projects and changes to the council’s financial position since the plan was last adopted by Council. If not updated, then the plan would not reflect the wishes of the service committees that have contributed to the updated plan.
