The forward plan is a list of the council’s upcoming key decisions.
Key Decisions are executive decisions which are likely to result in the incurring of expenditure, or the making of savings, of more than £500,000 and/or be significant in terms of their effects on communities living or working in an area comprising two or more wards in the Borough.
Notice of a key decision is given at least 28 days before the date when the decision is to be taken - usually by the Cabinet at their monthly meeting.
The Notice also indicates whether any decisions need to be taken in private if exempt or confidential information might be disclosed.
Some Key Decisions are taken by Chief Officers of the Council under the Delegated Powers in compliance with the provisions of the Council's Constitution.
