RESOLVED that Executive notes the progress made and achievements under the first year review of the Single Equality Scheme 2019-2023.
Executive considered the report of the Portfolio Holder – Corporate Governance which presented the first year review of the Single Equality Scheme 2019 – 2023.
The report explained that the Single Equality Scheme 2019-2023 provided a framework for implementing the Council’s obligations with regard to the general and specific equality duties and encompassed the range of protected characteristics as defined with the Equality Act 2010. The Scheme set out the Council's legal responsibilities, four corporate equality objectives with actions and measures, performance monitoring arrangements and responsibilities for equality. Appendix 1 to the report illustrated the achievements and progress under each objective.
Moved by Councillor Duncan McGregor and seconded by Councillor Deborah Watson
