To consider any issues relating to the Community Strategy.
The Deputy Chief Executive/Director of Corporate Services reported upon the progress to date in developing a Sustainable Community Strategy for Wirral and presented a final draft of the Strategy for consideration, in accordance with the requirements of the Local Government Act 2007. It had been produced following a consultation process and he provided a summary of consultation responses. The final draft of the Strategy was now being circulated to members of Wirral’s Strategic Partnership for adoption through the governance arrangements of partner organisations, as appropriate. He commented that the Council was required to formally adopt the Strategy in accordance with the Local Authorities (Functions and Responsibilities) Regulations 2000/2853. He therefore proposed that the final draft of Wirral’s Sustainable Community Strategy be referred to the next full Council meeting for formal adoption.
(1) That the Sustainable Community Strategy be approved and referred to the Council in accordance with the Local Authorities (Functions and Responsibilities) Regulations 2000/2853.
(2) That, given the partnership nature of the document, delegated authority be given to the Chief Executive, in consultation with the Leader of the Council and the Chair of Wirral’s Strategic Partnership to make any minor changes to the Strategy, identified by members of the partnership prior to its publication and launch.
