The forward plan is a list of the council’s key decisions that will be made over the next one to four months. These decisions will be made by either the Cabinet or by officers who have been delegated authority by the Cabinet.
The forward plans are published on the first working day of the month.
The plan includes a short description of the decision to be made; who will make it; when the decision will be taken; details of the planned consultation with local people and other stakeholders; and contact details for further information (including reports and background papers).
In accordance with the Council’s Constitution, Part 4 (B) Access to Information Procedure Rules, Paragraph 16, the Council can give notice that a key decision not included in the Council’s Forward Plan in order to give 28 working days’ notice can be included in an agenda for a Cabinet meeting.
