8. CHICHESTER CITY COUNCIL BUSINESS PLAN
NOTICE OF MOTION RECEIVED ON 18 SEPTEMBER 2021 FROM COUNCILLOR SHARP:
“The Chichester City Business Plan is still on hold due to Covid and associated uncertainties. CDC and WSCC face ongoing budget cuts that affect many services. Services which are discretionary risk being given low priority and in other cases services are only being progressed if they involve issues of safety. This may cause some dissatisfaction and puzzlement among residents. As a prelude to any further discussions that may emerge with CDC and WSCC and conscious of the fact that we are now in the third of our four Mayoral years I request that an informal discussion involving Councillors and all staff in the form of a roundtable (unconstrained by agenda papers) be held to enable more wide-ranging discussion of the direction this Council may wish to take. Different ways of financing projects and a wide range of topics should be able to be brought forward with the aim of enhancing the community and the lives of the residents of Chichester. Discussion should also carry with it a realistic expectation of staffing support necessary to make future intentions happen.”
9. REPORTS OF REPRESENTATIVES ON OUTSIDE BODIES
To receive reports, if any, from City Council representatives on Outside Bodies
10. WARD REPORTS FROM CHICHESTER CITY COUNCILLORS
To receive reports, if any, from City Councillors about matters affecting their wards
11. REPORTS FROM CHICHESTER DISTRICT AND WEST SUSSEX COUNTY COUNCIL’S WARD MEMBERS – LIMITED TO 3 MINUTES PER SPEAKER
To receive reports from Chichester division members of West Sussex County Council and from Chichester ward members of Chichester District Council, if they consider it to be appropriate.
To answer questions (if any) from members of Council pursuant to Standing Order 8.
13. COMMON SEAL
