To consider the update on the Strategic Risk Register for the period Quarter 3 2021-22.
Councillor David Marren came back into the room.
Josie Griffiths, the Head of Audit and Risk introduced the report to the Committee and invited any questions or comments.
The Committee noted the earlier comments that related to reputational risk raised during public speaking time by Councillor Liz Wardlaw. Some Committee members had also had similar feedback from parish councils in respect to a perceived wall of silence from officers and a lack of joined up thinking. There was some discussion about the need to understand customers in times of crisis and how front-line officers can best respond to them.
There was an acceptance from the Committee that Place-based activities for the council posed the greatest risk to reputation given that residents will judge these services more because they have direct experience with them.
That the Strategic Risk Update for Quarter 3 2021/22 be received and noted.
