Report from the Assistant Chief Executive.
1. To note the progress made with the Year Ahead activities.
Consideration was given to the report which was the final progress report on the Year Ahead Plan. The Plan had been approved by Cabinet in September 2020 as the Council’s Plan for operating in and recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. The original Plan had set out the headline themes and corresponding outcomes and key actions from September 2020 through to June 2021. An extension to the Plan was agreed in June 2021 and remained in place until the new Council Plan came into effect. The new Council Plan was approved by Council in January 2022.
As at 28th January, 2022, 85% of the activities outlined within the extended Year Ahead Plan were either complete or on track and ongoing. 9% were behind schedule and 5% were off track. 6 actions from the original Plan were still ongoing at the time of the previous report. 3 of these had since been completed, 1 was on track, 1 was behind schedule and 1 was off-track. Further details and updates were outlined in Appendix 1 to the report.
At the meeting Cabinet Members highlighted particular actions that had been completed from their portfolios over the course of the Year Ahead Plan. They wished to place on record their thanks to all officers involved with the completion of those actions.
The report had been considered by the Overview and Scrutiny Management Board as part of the pre-decision scrutiny process and they noted the report as per the recommendation.
