Minutes:

The Chief Operating Officer presented a report which proposed a number of updates to the 2019-2023 Council Plan (the Plan) in view of the changed context over the past year, and outlined progress and discussions currently under way to develop a 10-year Plan for the city.

 

The proposed updates, set out in Annex 1 to the report, did not seek to change the strategic outcomes of the Plan, but to describe changed or additional activities required to achieve these outcomes.  They had been identified through conversations with key partners and organisations across York and discussion with senior managers in the council.  An update on progress against the original 78 actions in the Plan was provided in Annex 2.

 

Development of a 10-year plan, first proposed last summer, had been delayed by the need to respond to subsequent waves of Covid infections.  Conversations were now taking place with partner organisations, from which recurring themes included the need for ambition, clarity, and focus on the most critical activities, as well as for the plan to be jointly owned by the city as a whole.
