Council Plan 2012/2013

23 February 2012


A report to council provided details of the council plan 2012-2013. The plan had been developed by taking into account recent developments including continuing financial pressures, the Munro review of child protection and changes in the education and health systems. It was noted that monitoring of the council plan would continue on a quarterly basis, focusing on the key measures of success.

The business support overview and scrutiny committee considered this report on 2 February 2012 and the views of the committee were set out in paragraph 6 of the report. The cabinet had considered this report on 14 February 2012 and its recommendation to council was set out in paragraph 12 of the report.

It was noted that a diversity impact assessment screening had been undertaken on the draft plan. It was found that there was no need to carry out a full assessment. It was noted that officers would continue to assess and monitor the plan, both prior to its agreement by council, and throughout the life of the plan, to ensure compliance with all statutory requirements.

Councillor Jarrett, portfolio holder for finance and deputy leader, supported by Councillor Rodney Chambers, leader of the council, proposed the recommendation set out in the report.

On being put to the vote, the motion was carried.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020.
