Reasons for the Decision


The previous update of the Strategic Risk Register had previously been reported in February 2022.  Since the last update, the Strategic Risk Register had been refreshed and updated by the Corporate Management Team.  The Strategic Risk Register reflected the significant change in circumstances in which the Council had been operating since Covid-19 and the different challenges and opportunities it now faced. 


Risk Number 11 – Failure to put in place safe working practices and social distancing measures to protect officers and service users, had now been removed from the register as it had been at Green status for over six months. There remained twelve risks within the register, which were detailed within the report.
