Decision Maker: Cabinet
Decision status: For Determination
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: No
(a) That the comments of the Scrutiny Commission on the Youth Justice Strategic Plan 2020-2023, be noted;
(b) That the County Council at its meeting on 8 July 2020 be recommended to approve the Youth Justice Strategic Plan 2020-2023.
REASONS FOR DECISION:
The County Council has a statutory duty under Section 40 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 to produce an annual Youth Justice Plan. Following guidance issued by the Youth Justice Board (YJB) in 2015, the Youth Offending Service Management Boards (YOSMB) were able to choose whether to develop a one or three-year Plan. The new Plan will cover a three-year period with annual updates being provided to the YOSMB and YJB, so reducing the burden on the Youth Offending Service.
The Youth Justice Board may request the Youth Offending Service to undertake further reviews of the Plan before it is next refreshed in 2021 to ensure that it reflects changes in priorities and budget.
