Decision details

Sub-regional Strategy for the South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To recommend to Council the South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership Sub-regional Strategy


That Cabinet agree to recommend to Council:


1)    That the Sub-regional Strategy at Appendix A be agreed, subject to any final consultation feedback as agreed by the Leader as portfolio holder; and


2)    That the Sub-regional Strategy becomes a line of inquiry in the Partnership’s Annual Scrutiny.

Reasons for the decision:

·       The opportunity to align strategic priorities across the Councils through a single Sub-regional Strategy provided a Partnership platform to further realise the benefits of collaborative working;

·       Having the single Strategy would demonstrate to external partners our alignment in key areas and collective focus on addressing the issues of strategic importance to our sub-region.  This would be particularly helpful when engaging with Government and funders.

Alternative options considered:

·       Do nothing.  It had already been agreed by councillors, via the Annual Delivery Plan, that a Sub-regional Strategy for the Partnership should be developed.  As such, this option was discounted.
