Corporate Plan

Meeting: 20/04/2010 - Cabinet (Item 72)

72 Report on the Corporate Plan 2010-14

Report of the Director Policy, Research and Communications is circulated


Supporting documents:


The Corporate Plan was considered by Cabinet at its last meeting on 23 March 2010. Cabinet had requested that the order of the priorities be reviewed to give services to people the highest priority. Cabinet also deferred approving the Plan for onward recommendation to Council in order to consider the outcome of the scrutiny exercise.


The Leader presented an updated Corporate Plan which took account of the comments previously made.  The Plan was considered by the Budget and Performance Task Group in October 2009 and more recently, the Overview and Scrutiny Organisation and Resources Select Committee on 25 March 2010. Details of questions raised by the Select Committee together with responses were presented.


Cllr Osborn, Chairman of the Select Committee attended and explained his Committee’s views. Overall, the Select Committee welcomed the Plan as the core document to take the Council forward over the next four years. The Select Committee had noted that more detailed information would emerge from departmental delivery plans and the Council’s new Business Plan which  would be subject to the scrutiny process. The Leader requested that the delivery plans be posted to the intranet for access by Councillors particularly those involved in scrutiny.


Recommended to Council:


That the Corporate Plan 2010-2014 be adopted.


Reasons for Recommendation


All high performing organisations have a Corporate Plan or equivalent to direct and focus their work.   An ambitious and effective Corporate Plan will focus and galvanise the organisation’s resources to deliver its strategic priorities during the next four years.
