Councillor Phil Davies introduced a report by the Chief Executive which provided Cabinet with a refreshed Corporate Plan for the period 2014-2016 for consideration and for referral to the Policy meeting of Council on 2 December 2013. 


The Corporate Plan for 2013-2016 had been agreed by Council on 5 March 2013 following extensive consultation with residents, partners and other stakeholders.


The Corporate Plan provided the organisation with a clear vision, set of priorities and was the basis on which a performance framework would be developed to monitor progress towards the defined objectives. The report also contained the current financial position of the organisation for the same period.


A supplementary report had also been circulated following the all Member event on 27 November, 2013 at which Members had scrutinised the Corporate Plan 2014 – 2016. This report provided feedback from the event and requested that Cabinet consider and approve the proposed amendments to the Corporate Plan as detailed in appendix 1 to the supplementary report.


Councillor Phil Davies, referring to two comments he had that morning received from Councillor Gilchrist, stated that he was happy for these to be included as amendments to the Plan in the Regeneration and Environment section.


Councillor Ann McLachlan commended the wide ranging consultation process which had taken place on the Plan and highlighted the fact that the medium term financial strategy provided an overview of the Council’s financial position and the strategy required to operate within the funds available.




Cabinet, having considered the contents of the Corporate Plan and Financial Position Statement as provided at Appendix 1 of the report and, taking account of the feedback from the elected Member event, approves the Corporate Plan 2014 – 2016, incorporating the amendments detailed in Appendix 1 to the supplementary report. Also to be included, the following amendments to the Regeneration and Environment section:


‘This year we will:

·  Maintain a focus of road safety particularly around our schools

·  Develop alternative models for regeneration, including local asset backed vehicles, which will enhance employment opportunities through working with private sector partners’


The Corporate Plan, as amended, be referred to the Policy meeting of Council on 2 December 2013 for adoption.
