The Committee received and noted the forward work programme for 2019/20. Members asked whether there would be a capacity issue in relation to the amount of work contained in the planner, and the Head of Democratic Services advised that this could be accommodated. In the event that additional items were added, an assessment of the capacity to undertake additional work would be needed.
In discussion, it was noted that Democratic Services undertake an annual survey for elected members. Members agreed to contribute to the questions in this year’s survey which in due course could then inform the forward work programme.
RESOLVED: That the forward work programme be approved subject to the addition of the draft members’ survey being discussed at the next meeting.
