To receive a report of the Chief Executive considering the progress against delivery for the Corporate Plan 2020-2024 at its midway point. This report reflects on performance against achievement of the priorities over the past two years, undertakes a brief gap analysis to understand where delivery is untracked via existing KPIs, identifies a range of challenges to delivery moving forward and, ultimately, recommends a refreshed corporate plan be brought back to Cabinet for consideration and onward recommendation to full Council as appropriate.
The Cabinet had before it and noted a *report of the Chief Executive considering the progress against delivery for the Corporate Plan 2020-2024 at its midway point.
The Leader outlined the contents of the report stating that it had been two year’s since the Council adopted its second Corporate Plan and that now was the time to reflect on the progress of delivery and refresh the plan as necessary. The plan had been adopted just weeks prior to the start of the pandemic which had impacted on some of the delivery strands.
Consideration was given to:
· The designation of the Exe Valley AONB and whether any progress had been made on the proposal, the process for designating an area of outstanding natural beauty and whether the idea should be put on hold until the Government changed its processes
· The Mid Point Review would be considered by the Policy Development Groups and return to Cabinet for further consideration with a view to updating the Corporate Plan with refreshed delivery priorities
