Cabinet Forward Plan
The Council's Forward Plan is a document which shows the key decisions, which are currently known about, that the Council's Cabinet intends to make over the next four months. Each plan is updated monthly and runs from the first of each month.
The regulations define a key decision to mean an Executive decision taken by Cabinet which is likely –
(A) to result in the local authority incurring expenditure which is, or the making of savings which are, significant having regard to the local authority’s budget for the service or function to which the decision relates;
For this purpose significant expenditure or savings shall mean –
Revenue: Any contract or proposal with an annual payment of more than £100,000.
Capital: Any capital project with a value in excess of £250,000.
(B) to be significant in terms of its effects on communities living or working in any wards or electoral divisions in the area of the local authority.
For the purposes of the Constitution, the Cabinet may determine that a decision, which will have a significant impact on only one ward, shall be regarded as a key decision.
In determining whether a decision is significant in terms of its effect on communities consideration should be given to:-
- the number of residents/service users that will be affected in the wards concerned;
- whether the impact is short term, long term or permanent;
- the impact on the community in terms of the economic, social and environmental well-being.
