To agree the Overview and Scrutiny Committee's
work programme for 2019/20.
Members were asked to consider the development of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee’s 2019/20 Work Programme. A number of topics had been submitted for consideration, and these had been subject to an initial prioritisation by the Chairman of the Committee and members of the Council’s Corporate Management Team. The Solicitor to the Council provided details on the recommendations that had arisen from that prioritisation and how the proposals would incorporate the suggestions submitted during the consultation period. A list of regular reports received by the Committee was distributed to Members and the Solicitor to the Council confirmed that the Work Programme would be updated to include reviews and workshops and a review of the Work Programme would take place in October 2019.
In response to a query regarding the suggested Financial Reporting in Parishes Work Programme topic, the Solicitor to the Council and the Finance Lead Specialist confirmed that at present there was no way of recording Council expenditure in each parish. However, as part of the Customer Connect Programme and with the introduction of Locality Teams and new ways of working, it could be possible to develop systems to capture this information within the parameters of GDPR.
RESOLVED – That the 2019/20 Work Programme be agreed.
