Report Writing for Local Councils
NEW – Report Writing for Local Councils
Tuesday 19th October 2021, 10.00am – 12.00noon
Tuesday 9th November 2021, 1.00pm – 3.00pm
Wednesday 8th December 2021, 6.30pm – 8.30pm
This is a new course designed for both clerks and councillors. The tabling of written reports to accompany agenda items is an increasingly common method of ensuring that councillors not only take fully informed decisions, but also that there is an audit trail showing that they have acted properly when taking such decisions. Reports also provide a snapshot of the council's thinking at the time that proposals were considered and are also a useful tool for considering confidential matters properly.
The course is being run by our colleague, Jake Atkinson (Chief Executive of Leicestershire and Rutland Association of Local Councils) and has already been successfully run in that area, receiving excellent feedback. Jake knows local councils very well and the course has been specifically written for parish and town councils.
The course will allow those tasked with writing such reports to do so effectively, and will cover:
- Types of reports
- Benefits of using written reports in decision making
- Who should write reports?
- What should be included?
- How to structure a council report
- And more…………
Cost £40 per person for members; £80 per person for non-members
