Title of Item/Report
Council Plan 2010 - 2013
Record of the Decision
Cabinet considered a report that provided members with the draft Council Plan and abridged Service Improvement Plans for 2010-13. The Council Plan sets out Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s key priorities, which were the Council’s contribution to the Borough’s Sustainable Community Strategy.

The first part of the 2010-2013 Council Plan provided information about the Council and its work for the local community. The second part was an action plan setting out how the Council would achieve our priorities and how success and progress towards those priorities would be measured.

The Service Improvement Plans provided further detail on how the improvement priorities and objectives would be delivered and linked priorities to resources. Business Unit plans would provide the detail on other areas of the Council’s day to day work.

It was noted that Special Council would be invited to consider presentations on the content of both the Council Plan and the Service Improvement Plans at its meeting to be held on 24th March 2010, and it was proposed that subject to their approval, Council be also asked to authorise the Chief Executive to sign off the final documentation with any necessary amendments arising from the year end, in consultation with the Leader of the Council.

RECOMMENDED to Council that

1.The draft Council Plan and Service Improvement Plans 2010 - 2013 be approved.

2.Subject to Recommendation 1 above, delegated authority be given to the Chief Executive Officer to approve the final content of the Council Plan and Service Improvement Plans 2010-2013, in consultation with the Leader of the Council.
Reasons for the Decision
The Council Plan and Service Improvement Plans set out how the Council would improve its services and contribute to community objectives. The plans were based on the objectives and outcomes already set in the Sustainable Community Strategy and the targets within the Local Area Agreement but provide focus on the key objectives we need to achieve authority wide and which needed to be monitored by Corporate Management Team and the Cabinet. The Council’s constitution stated that Council must approve the plans.
