Forward Plan of key decisions

Forward Plan of key decisions

Following the introduction of The Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012, the council has launched a new style Forward Plan system.

The new Forward Plan is published 28 days before each Cabinet or executive member meeting, setting out information on all the key decisions that are expected to be taken at that meeting, along with decisions to be taken at future meetings where known. In advance of being published on the  Forward Plan, individual notices of new key decisions will be published as they are known and these are listed as new issues. Further information can be found on page 1 of the Forward Plan.

Exempt reports

The council is also required to give at least 28 days' notice if it wishes to consider any of the reports on the agenda of an executive meeting (such as Cabinet) in private session. The council is also required to consider any representations received as to why an item should not be taken in private and to publish its decision.

The last column of each item on the Forward Plan will indicate any proposal to consider that item in private session. Should you wish to make any representations in relation to an item being taken in  private session,  these must be made not later than five clear days before the meeting at which the item is due to be considered.
