To agree the Overview Working Group’s work plan for the current year.

Additional documents:


The Working Group received the Cabinet items for review during 2014/15 and allocated them to its Work Plan.


There were some items from the previous Cabinet Overview Working Group work plan that were not completed which members thought should be added to the work plan of this Group.


Some Members of the Group felt that it would be beneficial for a representative from the Housing Tenants Panel to become a co-opted member of the Cabinet Overview Working Group whilst other Members felt that it would be more appropriate to invite a representative to meetings where there is a specific requirement.   Officers agreed to investigate the constitutional implications of co-operation and advise Councillors of the most appropriate course of action prior to the next meeting.




A     It is recommended to Cabinet that a review of the proposed junction M11 7a and Empty Council Properties be added to the Overview Working Group Work Plan for 2014/15 (dates of consideration to be confirmed at a future meeting).


B    The work plan is approved as per the table appended to these minutes.


Matters of Urgent Business

Such other business which, in the opinion of the Chairman, should be received as a matter of urgency by reason of special circumstances to be specified in the minutes.
