Report of the Chief Executive 

Additional documents:


(Cabinet Member with Special Responsibility Councillor Lewis)


Cabinet received a report from the Chief Executive, which set out a summary of Cabinet’s strategic priorities for the purpose of informing budget decisions for 2020-21 and future years. Cabinet were requested to endorse and refer the priorities for adoption by Full Council on 29 January 2020. No options were provided.


Councillor Lewis proposed, seconded by Councillor Jackson:-


“That the recommendations, as set out in the report, be approved.”


Councillors then voted:-


Resolved unanimously:


(1)          That Cabinet adopt the priorities set out in Appendix A, and appended to the minutes, to support strategic decision-making.


(2)          That Cabinet considers these priorities as the basis for the 2020-21 budget.


(3)          That Cabinet refers the priorities for adoption by Full Council at its meeting on 29 January 2020.


Officers responsible for effecting the decision:


Chief Executive


Reasons for making the decision:


Adopting the priorities at an outline level will ensure sufficient clarity and substance to provide a basis for Cabinet to make its budget recommendations for 2020-21 and beyond.  The priorities will eventually supersede those set out in Ambitions: Our Council Plan 2018-22.  The initial adoption by Cabinet and referral to Council will inform further consultation and development in detail towards a comprehensive strategic plan.
