The forward plan is a list of the council’s key decisions that will be made over the next month. These decisions will be made by either the Cabinet or by Cabinet Members (& occasionally Officers) who have been given the necessary authority.
Key Decisions are those which are financially significant or which have a significant impact. This has been decided, by the Council, to be decisions which involve income or expenditure over £250,000 or which will have a significant effect on people or organisations in two or more wards.
The Forward Plan also provides notice of when the Cabinet may decide to exclude the press and public from part of a meeting due to the disclosure of exempt information and the reasons for this.
The forward plans are normally published on the last working day of the month.
