This report provided details of the annual review of the Risk Strategy. The report stated that the Risk Management Strategy was reviewed annually to ensure that it remained up to date and continued to reflect the Council’s approach to risk management.

The Cabinet approved the revised 21/22 Risk Management Strategy at Appendix 1 to the report as setting out the Council’s approach to Risk Management.




The establishment of a corporate framework for risk management is recommended by CIPFA and SOLACE and will complement and support the work already being carried out within each directorate to manage risks.
