Minutes:

The Executive Member for Corporate Policy and Resources, Councillor Lewanski, introduced the report which provided an update on risk management in Quarter 1 of 2021/22. Annex 1 of the report provided an update on strategic risks.

 

Councillor Lewanski explained that SR11 – Reform of the Planning System was recommended for closure as the Government’s plan to reduce the threshold for the provision of affordable homes had been dropped. Further detail was included in annex 4 of the report.

 

However, a new risk, Planning System Reform, was proposed to reflect the latest implications of the Government’s proposed reforms to the planning system, the details of which were included in annex 5 of the report.

 

It was identified that at the end of Quarter 1, there were two red rated operational risks, and details of those were included in the exempt annex 2 and in annex 3.

 

Councillor Lewanski explained that the report would be considered by the Audit Committee at its meeting on 28 September, with any observations made to be reported to the relevant Executive member.

 

The Leader of the Council explained that there was exempt information relating to this item. Item 7 was adjourned so that the exempt information could be considered under item 11.

 

During the exempt discussion, there was consideration of a further proposed strategic risk.

 

Following the exempt discussion, the Executive returned to the recommendations in item 7 and;

 

RESOLVED:

 

1.    To note the Q1 update on risk management provided by the report and associated annexes.

 

2.    To approve the closure of the strategic risk on ‘Reform of the planning system’ (SR11) as detailed in the report and in Annex 4.
