Refresh of the Work Programme

Report of the Director of Transformation and Partnerships.

Minutes:

The Chairman asked the Overview and Scrutiny Officer to speak to Members in relation to the Refresh of the Work Programme (for copy see file of minutes).

 

The Overview and Scrutiny Officer explained that the report highlighted work that had been undertaken by the Committee within the past year and also looked forward, seeking suggestions from Members to be included within the Committee’s work programme for the forthcoming year.   Members were reminded that the aims and objectives were aligned to those of the Council Plan and associated plans, as well as the Safe Durham Partnership Plan priority areas.  It was explained that the report set out the activities undertaken at Appendix 3 and the Overview and Scrutiny Officer noted the ongoing Joint Working Group with the Children and Young People’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee looking at Residential Children’s Homes and the upcoming Road Safety Strategy Working Group.

 

The Overview and Scrutiny Officer noted Members could also suggest possible areas that Committee could consider, with a further report to come back to Committee in June.

 

The Chairman thanked the Overview and Scrutiny Officer and noted the Vice-Chairman, Councillor H Liddle would chair the meetings of the Road Safety Strategy Working Group.  He added that a topic he felt could be looked at by the Committee was volunteering, civic duty and how that helped society, however, he noted that the decision upon any topics to be considered would be for the Committee to decide upon collectively.

 

Resolved:

 

(i)              That the Safer and Stronger Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee note the information contained in the Altogether Safer priority theme of the Council Plan 2016 -2019.

(ii)            That the Safer and Stronger Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee at its June meeting receive a further report detailing the Committee’s Work Programme for 2019 -2020.
