FORWARD PLAN AND LEADERS STATEMENT

Preamble

ItemPreamble
C
21/10
Councillor Mrs Nesbitt, Councillor Gibson and Councillor Woodhead all declared a personal non prejudicial interest in respect of agenda item 11 - Cabinet Minutes - CAB 193/09 and agenda item 22 - Housing and Community Safety Select Committee Minutes - HCS 44/09 as they were members of the Tristar Management Board.

The Leader of the Council gave his Forward Plan and Leaders Statement.

The Leader of the Council outlined that the new national government was not in the form that many had envisaged or hoped for but at least it would appear to be a stable solution, which would allow the Country to move forward.

The Leader of the Council had no doubt that within a very short time there would be initiatives and legislation introduced that would impact on local government in general and on the authority in particular. The Leader of the Council was sure that if the Council worked together it would be able to ensure the protection of the Council frontline services, the employees and those residents who were in most need.

As the national policies were introduced, Members would be kept informed through briefing sessions and the Forward Planning process would be developed to react to the initiatives.

With the period of "purdah" leading up to the election there was little to report on regional or sub-regional activity, this would no doubt change very quickly.

On the Economic Climate there were some really positive messages contained in the report that would be submitted to Cabinet and the employment statistics showed a very gradual improvement in the number of residents on Job Seekers Allowance and also on the number of job vacancies in the Borough.

The Leader of the Council reminded Members that this was a significant day in the history of Stockton being the 700th anniversary of the market charter and the Leader of the Council congratulated all those Members and Officers concerned in developing the programme of celebration.
