Report of Chief Executive attached
The Cabinet considered a report of the Interim Chief Executive presenting the annual review and refresh of Southend 2050 setting out how the Council will use the evolved Southend 2050 outcomes to drive recovery and build on the positives seen through the pandemic, including the work with the community and partners, adaptation of services and more effective remote working. This item was considered by all three Scrutiny Committees.
Reasons for recommendation:
To ensure that the Council is clear on prioritised milestones to achieve the desired outcomes, focussing on the response to the pandemic, economic recovery and sustainability – including financial, environmental and transformation as an organisation.
Not to review its current ambition and desired outcomes. This would mean failing to set out the huge impact the crises has had on the Borough, its people and the Council and the approach to recovery. The Council has committed to undertake an annual review of the outcomes and milestones.
Note: This is a Council Function.
