Report of Councillor Cowen, Executive Member for Finance & Growth.

Additional documents:


Councillor Phil Cowen, the Executive Member for Finance & Growth and Chairman of the Anglia Revenues & Benefits Partnership Joint Committee presented the report.


Breckland Council had established the Anglia Revenues Partnership (ARP) with partner authorities and had been at the forefront of delivering a revenues and benefits service that had been a pathfinder in the field. As an organisation it had developed systems and working practices that had set new standards and brought significant savings and income to the Council.


As with all innovative business enterprises, ARP continued to look at ways of improving its service to its clients and thus to the residents of the Districts it served.


Opportunities presented themselves occasionally whereby organisations were able to rethink their business models and structures, and this was the case at ARP, hence the report that Members were being asked to consider.


The recommendation was proposed and seconded and following a vote, it was:


RESOLVED that the recommendation as highlighted on page 98 of the agenda pack be approved.
