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, Cabinet Committees or by Portfolio Holders who have been given delegated authority by the Cabinet.
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 £200,000 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 or Cabinet Committee 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 first working day of the month.
