Draft High-Level Business Plan 2023/24 - Department of Community and Children's Services

To receive the report of the Interim Director of Community & Children’s Services.


The Committee received the report of the interim director of Community and Children’s Services, and noted the factors taken into consideration in compiling the Business Plan for Community and Children’s Services, noting also that the Community and Children’s Services Committee had approved the departmental Business Plan 2023/24 at its meeting of 03 May 2023.

The Committee commented that there was merit in enveloping the City’s learning assets into the Destination City strategy, referencing in particular the Shoe Lane library development.

In response to a comment seeking clarity on library user types, the meeting heard that some data was available on users though there was no thorough data on differentiation between user types as the library service was a universal offering.

A Member commented that there was merit in exploring partnerships with other neighbouring boroughs such as Southwark and Tower Hamlets.
