Decision details

Strategic Risk Register Quarterly Review

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of Report


To provide a status report on the revised Strategic Risk Register as at the end of the second quarter 2022/23.




That the Council’s strategic risks, as at the end of quarter 2 2022/23, be noted.


Alternative Options Considered and Rejected


None were considered.  The Strategic Risk Register contained the key strategic risks to the delivery of the Council’s medium and longer term priorities.  A failure to monitor the action that was being taken to manage those risks would undermine the Council’s governance arrangements.


Reasons for the Decision


Since reporting to Members in August, the Strategic Risk Register had been refreshed and updated by the Risk Owners, and Corporate Management Team and had identified that there have been some positive movement in the Risk Register.


It contained twelve strategic risks as detailed within paragraph 3 of the officer’s report, along with details of relevant mitigations. 


The updated register was contained with Part B of this agenda, (Minute 56 referred), as it was considered to contain exempt information.
