Leaders / All




As set out in report.








The Leader was pleased to introduce the draft Corporate Plan for public consultation which set out the challenges and ambitions of the Council over the next four years.  It was structured around People, Place and Prosperity.  It had been informed by the administration’s manifesto, the resident insight survey, the Council’s Leadership Team, Elected Members and staff.  She welcomed the views of partners, stakeholders and residents as part of the consultation process to further shape the plan for the future.


The Performance and Insight Manager introduced the draft Corporate Plan 2024-2028 seeking Cabinet approval for consultation.  The Corporate Plan would be the primary strategy to shape the way the Council works and defines ambitions.  The Plan would be underpinned by a performance management framework to monitor its delivery.  The consultation period would run for 6 weeks closing at the end of January 2024.  All consultation feedback would be logged and considered.  The Overview and Scrutiny Panels would consider the Corporate Plan in March, before Cabinet approval in April 2024. 


A non-Cabinet Member sought clarification that the plan would be monitored using data to ensure it was effective and enable continuous improvement.  It was confirmed that the plan would be monitored and that Key Performance Indicators had been included in the draft Plan.  These could be influenced by the consultation responses.
