Approval of the Council Plan Delivery Plan 2015/16


The Chief Executive presented the draft refreshed Council Plan Delivery Plan, attached as Appendix 1, for approval. The Delivery Plan was used as the basis for the Council’s service and area planning, and performance and risk management framework, resulting in robust and regular internal and external reporting of progress against Council Plan commitments.


The Council Plan Delivery Plan was developed through work with each of the Council’s directorate management teams to identify the key programmes of work to deliver each of the ‘we will’ commitments set out in the Council Plan 2014-2017. In undertaking the work to refresh the Delivery Plan the following considerations were taken into account:


·        Progress made against target / milestone set in April 2014  up to December 2014 and forecasted performance to March 2015 – leading to re-profiling or revision as necessary

·        Where set target / milestone met – next stage targets or milestones for the period 2015 – 2017

·        New programmes of work resulting from internal review work and development of saving proposals for 2015/16 and 2017/18, or national policy developments


A summary of changes made was attached as Appendix 2 to the report.


The Chief Executive was pleased to highlight that despite the challenges faced by the Council the delivery plan included a number of areas in which there was to be significant investment including schools, superfast broadband, blue light services and the delivery of the LEP growth deal.


RESOLVED,that the refreshed Council Plan Delivery Plan as attached in Appendix 1 to the report be approved.
