Decision details

Equality and Diversity Strategy 2021-23

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director – Governance & Organisational Development presented a report concerning a light touch review of the Council’s Equality and Diversity Strategy. The Strategy had been due for review in 2020, however, given the challenges faced by the District, initially by the floods in February, followed by the outbreak of the pandemic, it was considered not appropriate to go out to consultation.  It was therefore proposed to undertake a light touch review to ensure that the Council continues to have an up to date document, and that a full review be undertaken once the results from the 2021 census were available.


AGREED             (unanimously) that the revised Equality & Diversity Strategy for 2021/23 be approved.


Reason for Decision


To ensure the Council can continue to fulfil its obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and the Public Sector Equality Duty.
