Agenda item

Work Programme



The Committee received an amended report, circulated and published on the day prior to the meeting, 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. Changes since the Committee’s last meeting, including any new items, had been made in consultation with the Co-Chairs, Deputy Chair and Group Spokesperson, via their regular pre-meetings, and these were set out at the beginning of Appendix A of the report. It was highlighted that this is a live document which will be brought to each meeting of the Committee and Members’ input to it was invaluable.




The Committee was asked to give consideration to the further additions or adjustments to the work programme presented at Part 2 of Appendix 1, and 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.




Reference was made to the comments at the beginning of the meeting made by Councillor Brian Holmshaw referring to his previous requests for a report to be submitted to this Committee in relation to the opportunities register, which the Council had prepared to identify forward funding for each Council service, and it was agreed that a report on this matter, in so far as it relates to Education, Children and Families services, should be added to the work programme, to be submitted to the next or subsequent meeting.




RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: That the Committee’s work programme, as set out in Appendix 1, be agreed, including the additions and amendments identified in Part 1, and with the addition of a report on the Opportunities Register pertaining to Education, Children and Families services being added to the work programme for submission at the next or subsequent meeting of the Committee.
