Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: For Determination
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Cabinet considered a report of Chief Executive providing an update on Southend-on-Sea’s preparations for the national 2021 Census which is due to take place in England and Wales on 21st March 2021.
That the work that the Council is doing to ensure a robust and accurate census for Southend-on-Sea, be noted and that Councillors help promote the benefits of the 2021 Census throughout the Council and the Borough.
Reasons for Decision:
To ensure the Council supports the Office for National Statistics to deliver an accurate population count for Southend-on-Sea in 2021.
The Council could choose not to locally support the delivery of the census. The potential implication of this would be that we do not get the necessary local support for it and the population count is not accurate and does not meet our needs. This would affect confidence in results.
