4. FAIRER WESTMINSTER DELIVERY PLAN
Councillor Hug thanked all officers involved in bringing forward the Fairer Westminster Delivery Plan. Councillor Hug explained that the plan sets out the Council’s work for the next year and beyond. Cabinet heard that the Delivery Plan will be updated every year so that it constantly reflects the priorities of Westminster’s residents and businesses.
Councillor Hug invited Pedro Wrobel, Executive Director for Innovation and Change to comment further on the report. Pedro thanked officers and Cabinet Members for working together with him and colleagues in Innovation and Change to produce the Delivery Plan. Cabinet heard that the Delivery Plan is part of the council’s commitment to being as open as possible about the work it undertakes and that to further support in this commitment the council hosted two events last week to speak to residents and businesses about the delivery plan and listen to what their priorities for the year ahead are.
