COUNCIL: 7TH DECEMBER, 2011
REFERENCE FROM CABINET: 16TH NOVEMBER, 2011
“C1507 REVIEW OF THE CORPORATE PLAN 2010-14 (L) (SCRUTINY - ALL) -
A report previously highlighting progress with the implementation of the above Plan was reported previously to Cabinet in May 2011. In addition, a revised Plan was also considered by the Cabinet on 7th September and subsequently referred to all Scrutiny Committees for comment.
Since that time the Plan had been updated to inform service planning for 2012/13, which would commence in October 2011 and to assist with the drafting of the Medium Term Financial Plan. This update had been done reflecting the revised Community Strategy for 2011-2021. A more comprehensive review and consultation would be undertaken during 2012.
A revised Corporate Plan as set out in Appendix 1 to the report had been produced to ensure clarity over what activities needed to be undertaken to deliver the agreed Improvement Objectives, what activities need to be revised and any changes in time frames. It was noted that 43 actions had been taken out of the Plan as they had now been completed and six actions had been deleted from the Plan as they could no longer be undertaken. 18 new activities which supported the delivery of the Improvement Objectives had been included. Improvement Objectives had not been amended as there had not been sufficient time to consult and these would be reviewed during 2012. The Plan had also been amended to include reference to a number of new initiatives e.g. work with Bridgend County Borough Council, greater emphasis on partnership working and area working.
The Plan had been considered by the Council’s five Scrutiny Committees in addition to an open session which had been undertaken for all Members during September which provided an opportunity to discuss the actions in more detail and explain the changes to the Plan. Consequently, a number of amendments had been made to the Plan and details of the consultation response and changes were attached at Appendix 3 to the report. These changes included reference to the new Enterprise Zone at St. Athan focusing on the aerospace sector and implementation of the Carbon Management Action Plan.
This matter was for Executive decision.
(1) T H A T the draft revised Corporate Plan for 2010-14 be endorsed.
(2) T H A T the draft Plan be referred to Council for approval.
