Draft 2020-21 Annual Forward Work Programme



 – Gareth Price (Head of Law and Regulations)


The Chair presented the item to the committee. It was suggested that the committee look at the Covid Strategic Recovery Aims report that was agreed at Cabinet on 24 June 2020. Members would be able to scrutinise the Council’s response in the areas that concern the committee.


Members asked the following:


-       Members made comment that now would be a good time to reset the plans that were taking place pre-Covid and start fresh with the issues that were set out in the report.


-       Members praised all employees in the authority on their continued hard work throughout the pandemic. Comment was then made that now would be good to look back and see what has been learnt through the recovery process.


-       The Head of Law and Regulation gave extra context of the report to the committee. Members were advised that Cabinet agreed those high level strategic aims in terms of recovery and the recovery process coming out of it. The committee will received updated service plans for this year to reflect those aims and translate into actions for each service area. Next month, the committee will receive those service plans. Suggesting with those recovery services in mind the committee can take the opportunity to review those issues. Members can invite Heads of Service, Cabinet Members and Corporate Directors to see what those service areas are doing to deal with those recovery aims. 




The committee agreed to accept the Annual Forward Work Programme 2020 – 21.


The meeting ended at 16:20.
