Decision planner

Each month we produce a Decision Planner that incorporates our Forward Plan.

The Decision Planner has the key decisions we are considering over the next three months.

As we update the Decision Planner each month we add key decisions from the Forward Plan.

The Decision Planner has details of:

  • the decision we are going to consider
  • the proposed date of the decision
  • documents we know we are going to consider
  • the contact officer for further information

If it is necessary for us to take an urgent Key Decision (a decision normally taken by Cabinet) that has not been included in the Decision Planner then we will publish a notice. You can view these notices on this page.
