Forward plan of key decisions


The Council produces a forward plan detailing “key decisions” which are to be taken by the cabinet or portfolio holders.

We have a requirement to give at least 28 clear days notice before a key decision is to be taken.

There is a further requirement to give 28 clear days notice of the intention to hold a meeting of cabinet / portfolio holder in private (either exclusively or in part).

Matters to be considered in private are clearly marked on the forward plan, together with the reason that each item is to be considered in private.

Representations as to why any of these items should be open to the public should be made to Democratic Services, North East Lincolnshire Council, Municipal Offices, Town Hall Square, Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, DN31 1HU or by email to democracy@nelincs.gov.uk.

The response of cabinet or the relevant portfolio holder to any such representations will be published within the agenda for that meeting.

Key decisions are usually those which are likely to result in significant expenditure or savings or are likely to have significant effects on those living or working in an area comprising two or more wards.

The forward plan includes the date on which the decision is due to be taken, who is going to be consulted, and how representations can be made. We publish the forward plan at the beginning of each month.

Copies of any document listed in the forward plan or subsequently submitted, except those which contain exempt, personal or confidential information, can be obtained by contacting the Democratic Services Team.
