To receive the Four-Month Rolling Programme of key decisions, which was considered by the Executive at its meeting on 11th January 2005, attached as Appendix A, and to identify any issues which the Committee would wish to have sight of before they are considered by the Executive.

6. COMMITTEE WORK PROGRAMME: IN-DEPTH REVIEWS
[Wards Affected: N/A]
6.1 Work Programme

It was agreed at the meeting on 16th March 2004 that the items to be included on the work programme for 2004/05 for in-depth reviews would be:-

6.2 Future Work Programme

The Committee is invited to discuss its future work programme. The Executive has agreed that a Youth Strategy Special Interest Group will conduct a review of services for young people. Members may consider that the work of the Youth Strategy Special Interest Group would duplicate the work proposed by this Committee for its second review as stated above.

It is suggested that the Environment and Leisure Overview and Scrutiny Committee request reports from the Special Interest Group on the work carried out as a way of addressing this Committee's interest in youth activity. It is therefore suggested this Committee pursue a different topic for an in-depth review. Members will recall that at its meeting on 16th March 2004, this Committee voted on what in-depth reviews to include on its forward work programme. 'Youth Activity' received the highest number of votes and 'Development Control' and 'Decriminalised Parking Enforcement' were tied in second place; the Chairman exercised his casting vote in favour of the recently completed review of Development Control. Therefore, there is the opportunity for this Committee to undertake an in depth review of Decriminalised Parking Enforcement, Members attention is brought to Agenda Item 9 which contains a report on this matter.
