Decision details

Work Programme

Decision status: Recommendations Approved



The Committee received a report containing the Committee’s Work Programme for consideration and discussion. The aim of the Work Programme is to show all known, substantive agenda items for forthcoming meetings of the Committee, to enable this committee, other committees, officers, partners and the public to plan their work with and for the Committee. It was highlighted that this is a live document and Members input to it was invaluable.


Details of the Council motion on 7 February 2024 in respect of "5 years since declaring a climate emergency" were outlined and it was noted that three aspects of that motion were for Strategy and Resources Policy Committee to respond to.  A suggested response in respect of the advertising policy element of this was set out in the report and it was confirmed that further work is required on the other aspects.  A suggested response from the Committee to these aspects of the motion will be submitted as soon as possible.


In addition, it was reported that the Chair of the South East Local Area Committee (LAC) had written to the Strategy and Resources Committee, on behalf of that LAC in respect of concerns about the future of Birley Spa Bath House that had been discussed at their last meeting.


This is a formal request of the LAC and needs to be dealt with as set out in the constitution. The Committee has three options as to how to deal with the referral.


The three options are:

(i) refer the matter to a Strategic Director

(ii) refer the matter to another relevant officer

(iii) refer the matter to the Committee by way of a report.




RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: That Strategy and Resources Policy Committee:-


(a) the Committee’s work programme, as set out in Appendix 1 be agreed, including the additions and amendments identified in Part 1 of the report;


(b) Members give consideration to any further issues to be explored by officers for inclusion in Part 2 of Appendix 1 of the next work programme report, for potential addition to the work programme;


(c) approval be given to the consideration of cross cutting issues as detailed in Appendix 1 of the report;


(d) the referrals from Council (petition and resolutions) detailed in Section 2 of the report be noted and the proposed responses set out be agreed; and


(e) the Executive Director Neighbourhood Services be requested to meet with the Chair of the South East Local Area Committee (LAC) to discuss the concerns with regard to Birley Spa Bath and then assess if a report needs to come back to Committee.
