The Forward Plan of Key Decisions is published each month and lists the key decisions that will be taken by the Council over the course of the next four months.

Key Decisions relate to those decisions which are likely to either:

  • result in the Council spending or saving money in excess of £500,000; or
  • have a significant impact on communities living or working in an area comprising two or more wards within the Borough of Colchester.

The Plan sets out when the decisions will be taken and by whom, what consultation will be undertaken in advance of the decisions and  the documents  which will be submitted to the decision taker for  consideration in taking the decisions on the Plan (although other documents may also be submitted to the decision taker).

If you wish to request details of documents regarding the Key Decisions on the Plan, please contact the individual officer identified.

The current Plan is available to view on this website via the link below and is also available for inspection free of charge at the Library and Community Hub, Colchester Central Library, 21 Trinity Square, Colchester CO1 1JB.  A list of the dates for publication of the Forward Plan for the 2017-18 municipal year is also available via the link below.
