“C1411 REVIEW OF THE CORPORATE PLAN 2010-14 (L) (SCRUTINY - ALL) -
Cabinet were requested to endorse the revised Corporate Plan for 2010-14.
The current Corporate Plan had been approved in 2010 and set out a four year vision for the Council. The Plan was structured around seven corporate priorities and 34 Improvement Objectives.
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. The update had taken account of the revised Community Strategy for 2011-2021. A more comprehensive review and consultation would be undertaken in 2012.
A revised Corporate Plan was attached to the report to ensure clarity over what activities needed to be undertaken to deliver the agreed Improvement Objectives, what activities needed to be revised and any changes in timeframes.
A number of new activities which supported the delivery of the Improvement Objectives had also been included in the revised Plan, and were prefixed with “Proposed New Action”.
Improvement Objectives had not been amended as there had not been sufficient time to consult, and these would be reviewed in 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 would be submitted for comment to all Scrutiny Committees following which it would be ratified by Cabinet prior to being submitted to Council for approval. Furthermore, an open session for all Members had been arranged for 21st September 2011.
The revised Corporate Plan would be submitted to Council for approval on 7th December 2011.
