Transformation Strategy

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Councillor Eamonn O’Brien, the Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Finance and Growth, presented the report which summarised the Council’s work to establish the foundations for a Let’s Do It! Internal transformation strategy to be delivered during 2021/22 and 2022/23.


In response to questions, it was noted that user experience improvements would be more than front-end changes, with wider system developments being a part of the improvements being made to the digital infrastructure. It was agreed that the Cabinet Member would meet with the Leader of the Opposition to discuss the strategy.  



That Cabinet:

1.   Note the internal progress to date in developing the transformation strategy.

2.   Endorse the overall proposed approach as a basis for action and approve investment proposals.

3.   Note an updating report will be provided to cabinet in January 2022.


Reasons for the decision:

This report provides the ‘blueprint’ for the delivery of an ambitious transformation programme for Bury Council over the financial years 2021/22 and 2022/23. It includes the feedback and recommendations from Ameo and sets out the strategic objectives for the programme; the proposed architecture for the next two years and an outline cost/benefit analysis. This report builds and draws on all existing projects and work relating to transformation and brings it into a single programme.
