Equality Scheme and Action Plan

In November 2006 the District Council published its race, disability and gender equality schemes supported by a corporate action plan bringing together actions to promote equality under each theme.  The Equality Scheme (combing race, disability and gender) was updated in 2010 and a new Equality Action Plan produced for 2010-12, progress against which is monitored annually by the District Council.

In April 2011, the District Council updated its Equality Action Plan for 2011/12 [PDF 12KB], setting out the work to be undertaken to meet the specific duties contained within the Equality Act 2010 and to progress towards the achieving level of the Equality Framework for Local Government.  This work includes developing equality objectives for the District Council by April 2012.
