The forward plan is a list of the council’s key decisions that will be made over the next one to four months. These decisions will be made by either the Cabinet or by officers who have been delegated authority by the Cabinet.
The forward plans are published on the first working day of the month.
The plan includes a short description of the decision to be made; who will make it; when the decision will be taken; details of the planned consultation with local people and other stakeholders; and contact details for further information (including reports and background papers).
Each of the Scrutiny Committees produces its own Scrutiny Work Plan which includes items for specifc consideration by that Committee as well as items to be considered by Scrutiny before a Cabinet / Council decision.
