Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
(Joint report of Director of Finance and Transformation and Director of Central Services)
The report provided an update on the progress made with the technical implementation and the preparation of content for the new website and advised that, in liaison with the Member Working Group, the launch of the new website had been deferred until June 2021. The delay would mitigate the risk related to local County Council and Police and Crime Commissioner Elections in May 2021 and allow sufficient time for the development of website content and enhanced digital services for local residents.
Following consideration by the Finance, Innovation and Property Advisory Board, the Cabinet Member for Finance, Innovation and Property resolved that:
(1) the progress in delivering the technical aspects of the website be noted;
(2) the deferral of the launch of the website until June 2021 for the reasons set out in the report be endorsed; and
(3) the additional costs of the deferral of the launch of the website be built into draft Estimates for 2021/22.
