Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Following Cabinet’s agreement of the new Organisation Strategy 2020-25 and the direction agreed for the next phase of Transformation (Cabinet, 29/10/19), this report sets out the refreshed set of transformation portfolios and programmes that will be delivered to achieve the council’s strategic ambitions and priorities.   Cabinet will be recommended to approve the proposed Transformation Programme.




1.    That the council’s refreshed transformation programme be agreed.


2.    That the investment required to deliver improved outcomes and financial benefits through transformation will be considered as part of the Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) report to Cabinet (28/01/20) and Council (04/02/20) be noted. 


Reason for decision:


The transformation programme, stretching across all aspects of the council’s work, will help to ensure we are enabling better lives and a better place, improving the quality of residents’ lives and reducing the inequality in life expectancy that exists across the county. It will enable the council to respond proactively and effectively to the complex and rapidly changing context we are working in. The programme will also make a significant contribution to achieving the financial sustainability required so that the council can deliver priorities for residents within available resources.
