88 Forward Plan 2019/20 pdf icon PDF 153 KB


The interim Head of Audit and Financial Services introduced this item drawing Members attention to items on the Forward Plan.  Discussion had taken place with the Chairman and Vice Chairman regarding the size of the agenda and it had been suggested that the agenda size and length of meetings could be reduced by circulating papers ‘for information’ outside the agenda and then asking if there were any matters arising from them in the meeting.  It was proposed that a number of items in the Forward Plan were dealt with in this way.  The Chairman added that links to supporting documents would be provided where possible.  Members asked that where links were provided that it took them to the document rather than to a website. He added that this approach would be kept under review.


The 9 March 2020 meeting date would be cancelled and rearranged.


Members requested that if the meeting was likely to extend beyond two hours this could be amended in their diaries.


RESOLVED:  a) The Forward Plan was received b) Officers to note the request for items to be circulated as ‘for information’ where possible c) The Scrutiny and Support Manager to send an email request to Members extending the length of meetings, where appropriate.
