Arising from a report of the Director of Corporate Affairs and Business Transformation, the Community Policy Development Group had recommended that the Community Engagement Strategy and Action Plan 2018-2019 be approved subject to an amended review timeframe from 4 to 2 years.
The Cabinet Member for Community Well-Being outlined the contents of the report stating that this merged document brought together a number of previous policies which now provided an effective overarching strategic approach to the Council’s communication and engagement activity. He drew members attention to the Social Media Policy and highlighted the work of the Communications Team
Consideration was given to:
· The Town Centre Manager role and whether such a role could be district wide.
· The Council’s mission, operating framework and understanding what the Council was trying to achieve
· Translation services
· The suggested stakeholder map and that as a live document it could be added to
RESOLVED that the recommendation of the Policy Development Group be approved subject to the removal of the word “opposition” from paragraph 3.4 (Appendix 1 – Media and Social Media Policy).
