Forward Plan

We publish a monthly Forward Plan setting out the executive 'key decisions' which are proposed to be made on behalf of the local authority over the months ahead.

The law requires notice to be given of these items looking 28 days ahead, but we seek to identify items over a longer period, up to 12 months ahead (the plan also lists some other proposed decisions not in the executive key decision category).

Notice made on behalf of the Chief Executive pursuant to s.10 The Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012 and paragraph 15 of the Access to Information Procedure Rules.

Decisions contained within the following paper will not have had the requisite 28 days on the Forward Plan ahead of consideration at the meeting of the Executive on 10 October 2022:

  • The Council’s response to supporting households through the cost of living crisis paper: “to approve the Council’s plans and proposals to continue to work to develop services and allocate funding to support residents affected by the cost of living crisis”

It is considered impractical to delay the decisions recommended in the paper until the following meeting of the Executive (21 November 2022) as the recommendations contained within the papers is time critical and a priority for the Council’s administration.

The matter will be subject to scrutiny at the Finance Committee on 29 September 2022 ahead of the Executive’s consideration.

What are key decisions?

Key decisions are, broadly, those executive decisions likely to result in significant spending or savings, or likely to have a significant effect on people living or working in two or more wards in the borough.

About the plan

Where the plan gives the date of an Executive meeting, that body is due to make the decision. It will be supplied with reports via the relevant Overview and Scrutiny Committees and other committees; these reports will be published as they become available. Other documents may be submitted and again these will be posted here.
