The forward plan is a list of the council’s key decisions that will be made over the next one to four months. These decisions will be made by either the Cabinet or by officers who have been delegated authority by the Cabinet.
The forward plans are published by the 14th day of the month. Individual reports will be available at least 5 clear working days prior to the meeting.
The plan includes a short description of the decision to be made; who will make it; when the decision will be taken; details of the planned consultation with local people and other stakeholders; and contact details for further information (including reports and background papers).

Annually, the Council appoints a Cabinet for decision making purposes and a number of Council Committees. The Council is responsible for the overall policy framework and budget.
