To consider the report of the Cabinet Member for Local Services and Community Safety seeking approval of the Safe City Partnership Annual Plan for 2011/12. Approval of the Plan is a statutory duty under the Crime and Disorder Act.
On consideration of the report of the Cabinet Member for Local Services and Community Safety, Cabinet agreed the following:
(i) To approve the Safe City Partnership Annual Plan 2011/12 and to recommend the Plan to Council for approval.
Reasons for the decision:
1. This annual plan is a statutory duty and part of the Policy Framework. It has been developed to reflect the findings of the annual joint strategic assessment which covers crime trends and patterns as well as community feedback. The draft plan has been considered by the members of Safe City Partnership, the Strategy Planning Board, the Crime Reduction Scrutiny Panel and Cabinet Member.
2. Approval of the recommendation will enable the Partnership to work to a clear and concise set of priorities for the forthcoming year and to deliver the headline actions relating to those priorities.
Alternative options considered:
Discussions have taken place to explore countywide Partnership options for a joint Plan as well as potential integration of this Plan with other Southampton Partnership plans but this would not meet the statutory deadlines to publish a Plan by 1 April 2011.
