Covid 19 Recovery Plan: Proposed new Operating Model

It is essential that the Council has an effective and resilient officer structure that is fit for purpose and aligned to the delivery of Council priorities set out in the Vision, Four Year Plan and Covid-19 Recovery Plan.

 

This report sets out a new operating model for the Council that will realign the organisational structure to the corporate priorities. The proposed model seeks to capitalise on the new ways of engaging and working with residents, partners, stakeholders and businesses established during the pandemic, address current areas of duplication and overlap of roles, bring together related functions, and more importantly provide additional capacity and resilience where it is needed most.
