2020 Vision Annual Report 2017/18 and Corporate Action Plan 2018/19

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Decision that the Council’s Annual Report for 2017/18 and the Corporate Action Plan for 2018/19, as set out at the report’s appendices, be recommended to the Council for approval.


Reasons for the Decision


To ensure that the Council met the requirements agreed in the updated Performance Management Framework alongside its 2020 Vision.    Whilst not a statutory requirement, this comprised a policy framework document for the Council and, as such, was regarded as a valuable aid to decision making.


Alternative Options Considered and Rejected


The Executive could have chosen not to produce an action plan and annual report.  However, this would not allow the Council to monitor its overall performance, to focus attention on the key service areas, to take remedial action where necessary and to plan the main areas of activity over the next twelve months.   This option was therefore not supported.


Key Points Arising from the Discussion


·       Referring to the five resident questions on the Corporate Action Plan (agenda page 85), a non-Executive Member asked what data would be used to provide the answers.  The Head of Partnerships and Community Engagement replied that these would be provided from the results of the Council’s three-yearly residents survey, the most recent of which had been undertaken earlier in the year and the results just provided and would be submitted to the full Council.


·       With reference to implementing the Capital Infrastructure and Development Strategy (agenda page 86), the same Member commented that the bullet points in this section were not specific.  The Chairman pointed out that the Council was dependent to a large degree on the County Council in this regard.  The Planning and Localism Portfolio Holder thanked the Member for drawing this matter to the Executive’s attention.  He clarified that this Council had an enabling role through the planning process but did not have direct responsibility to provide the required infrastructure.  It was agreed that the Corporate Action Plan should however reflect the Council’s commitment to ensuring sufficient infrastructure was provided to meet the growth of development.
