Forward Plans


A key decision needs to have been listed on the Forward Plan for at least 28 clear days before it is made.

Copies of decisions will be published to the website or can be obtained from the contact shown below-left.

Key Decisions taken at a meeting are normally taken when the meeting is open to the public. Very occasionally the forward plan may say that the Cabinet proposes to meet in private when taking a decision. The forward plan will explain why the decision is proposed to be taken in private. You may make representations to the Council if you consider that the decisions should be taken in public.

The following link provides access to the Forward Plan. Paper copies can also be obtained from the contact shown below-left. 

The SELEP Accountability Board Forward Plan is available here
