Integrated Impact Assessments

The Council has developed a new way to assess reports for the following policy implications prior to submission to Committee:

  • Equality & Diversity
  • Fairness & Poverty
  • Environment
  • Corporate Risk

By bringing together these separate policy implications into one integrated it will allow the Council to:

  • Demonstrate that report authors have considered all likely impacts of their report and provided details on any required mitigation action to overcome negative impacts
  • Enhance consideration of legal requirements prior to the report being submitted to Committee and raise awareness in staff of these issues.
  • Enable Elected Members to review and interrogate the implications of proposals prior to Committee.
