Minutes:

The Leader of the Council presented the draft Dorset Council’s first ever-whole council plan.  It set out the councils vision, ambitions, priorities and some of the key activities that services would undertake to deliver them.

 

An all member seminar had influenced the creation of the plan and views of residents and partners would be sought during a public conversation period. Feedback from those conversations would be incorporated into the draft plan in preparation for Full Council in February 2020.

 

The Portfolio Holder for Corporate Development and Change confirmed that all members would receive a copy of the draft plan, in order that they could share it with their town and parish councils. Members agreed that it was important to establish good connections and working relationships with all local councils. It was also an opportunity for the council to work collaboratively with the voluntary sector who could make valuable contributions to the council’s corporate objectives.
