ENV
26/11
Consideration was given to the draft report for EIT Review of Care for Your Area. Members considered each recommendation individually and agreed the final report.

The Equality Impact Assessment would be circulated to Members, along with the final report, before being forwarded to Executive Scrutiny Committee and Cabinet.
ENV
27/11
The Committee were advised that due to agreeing the report for Care for Your Area earlier than expected, the recommendations could be presented to Cabinet earlier than originally anticipated.

The Scrutiny Officer advised that the Efficiency, Improvement Transformation (EIT) Scrutiny reviews programme was drawing to an end and therefore requested that Members considered topics for future scrutiny reviews. It was anticipated that future reviews would continue to support the value for money. A letter would be sent to all Members requesting suggestions, and the suggestions received would be presented to Scrutiny Liaison Forum for discussion. Executive Scrutiny Committee would then agree the work programme and allocate reviews to each Select Committee.

Members were informed that the Committee would continue to receive monitoring updates on previously agreed recommendations.
