Is subject to call in?: No


(Councillor Eden-Green spoke prior to the consideration of the item.)


The Chairman drew attention to the supplement for the meeting.


The Head of Digital Transformation and Policy introduced the report which explained that the current Corporate Plan expires in March 2020 and therefore a draft Corporate Plan, 2020-2022 has been developed to replace it. As a significant district-wide document, setting the policy framework for the way the council delivers services, the Committee were asked to approve the document for consultation with all residents, businesses and stakeholders.


Options were set out in the report as follows:

  • To approve the draft Corporate Plan 2020-2022 for consultation between Monday 10 February until 5pm on Monday 23 March 2020.
  • To approve the new Corporate Plan period as 2020-2022.
  • To not approve the draft Corporate Plan 2020-2022, and so not to start consultation.


The Committee members made comments about the draft plan and acknowledged the importance of the public consultation. The recommendations in the report were proposed, seconded and when put to a vote agreed.



A.            The new Corporate Plan be a two-year plan, running from April 2020 to March 2022.

B.            That the draft Corporate Plan, as shown in Appendix 1, be released for consultation.


RECOMMENDED to full council: That the council consults the draft Corporate Plan for a period of six weeks rather than 12 weeks, as set out in the constitution.


Reasons for the decision: The council is required to develop and adopt a new Corporate Plan for April 2020. As a new strategic policy document for the council, there is a duty to consult to ensure that the new Plan is targeted at meeting the needs of residents, businesses and stakeholders.
