Double Devolution

The purpose of the report is to ask Executive to agree the recommended expressions of interest (EOI) of council services to be devolved to town or parish councils (Double Devolution) to take forward to the next stage of decision making following full business case of individual EOI.

It is proposed that we will devolve assets and or services from April 2024.
