Work Programme

Executive Forward Plan Nov 2023  (27/10/2023 to 30/11/2024)

Plan description

The Leader in consultation with the Chief Executive and Town Clerk prepares an Executive Work Programme to cover a period of twelve months. The Executive Work Programme contains matters which the Leader has reason to believe will be the subject of a key decision during the period covered by the programme or Executive decisions which are likely to be taken in private.

 

A Key Decision is one which is likely either to:

 

a)                  to result in the Local Authority incurring expenditure which is , or the making of savings which are, significant having regard to the Local Authority’s budget for the service or function to which it relates; or

 

b)                  to be significant in terms of its effect on communities living or working in an area comprising 2 or more wards in the area of the local authority.

 

While the majority of the Executive’s business at the meetings listed in the Executive Work Programme will be open to the public and media organisations to attend, there will be some business to be considered that contains, for example, confidential, commercially sensitive or person information.

 

This document serves as formal notice under the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012 that certain items in the Executive Work Programme will be considered in private because the item contains exempt information under Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended) and that the public interest in withholding the information outweighs the public interest in disclosing it. If an item is to be considered in private this will indicated on the individual decision notice.
