What is the Executive Forward Plan?


The Executive Forward Plan is a list of all non-key and key decisions the Authority intends to take during the next four month period.  The Plan is updated weekly, every Monday and is available to view on-line at


What is a non-key decision?


For the purposes of the Plan, a non-key decision is defined as a ‘decision of normal importance’ which:


·                 the Executive can collectively take as set out in Part 3 of the council’s constitution


·                 which any Executive Member can take individually in line with the Council’s Scheme of Delegation


What is a key decision?


A key decision is defined as a decision which is likely:


·                 to result in the Council incurring expenditure, or making savings, which are significant having regard to the Council’s budget for the service or function to which the decision relates i.e.:


           make a saving of more than 10% of the budget for a particular area  - or be more than £500,000

           require spending that is more than 10% of the budget for a particular area - or be more than £500,00


·                 to be significant in terms of its effects on communities


Such ‘key decisions’ can only be taken by the Executive, unless they have been specifically delegated to an Executive Member or Officer, or unless the Leader or Chief Executive is exercising their urgency powers.
