To consider the head of community services’ report.
Cabinet considered the head of community services’ report, which sought agreement to develop a strategy that set out the council’s aspirations and ambitions for improving the health and wellbeing of its communities.
David Turner welcomed the development of the strategy but asked for confirmation that the council would develop a joint strategy with the Vale of White Horse and that the council had the necessary budget.
In response, the Cabinet member reported that the Vale had already supported the development of a joint strategy. Cabinet noted that the council had allocated sufficient budget to develop the strategy and consult on it, but further budget might be necessary to implement the strategy. Cabinet welcomed the proposal.
