Reasons for Decision
  1. With the currently changing agenda for District Councils and the need to address policy, financial and operational changes, it is helpful to be able to draw on a network of like minded organisations.
  2. Given the small cost and minimal staff and Member input balanced against the potential benefits, the subscription is seen as providing value for money and therefore the recommendation is to support the proposal to join the DCN.
