Key Council documents and policies
The Council Plan is a document that underpins the Council’s vision. It sets out headline priorities, actions and measures that will prove its delivery. We report performance against the plan to Cabinet and Commissioners on a quarterly basis.
Our improvement plan draws together actions to ensure the Council becomes the well-run, high-performing authority that residents deserve.
Forward plan of key decisions
The Council is managed by a team of 5 commissioners, appointed by the government in February 2015 after a number of reports highlighted serious failings across the Council.
The commissioners make all key decisions about what services the Council provides, how these are delivered and how the Council's budget is spent.

Financial reports and data
Since October 2010, the Council has been publishing details of payments to suppliers over £500.
We also publish other data about Council spending and finances.
This helps to show our commitments to transparent decision-making and making information available to local businesses and residents.
