- For the adoption of a Universal Resource Allocation system from the 1 April 2011 based on the 2011/12 Citizens Statement.
- For new criteria to determine eligibility for adult social care services funded by the Council from the 1 April 2011 and the operational arrangements for its implementation.
- For the extension and management of existing agreements with third party providers, which expire in March 2011, pending the introduction of new framework contracts on the 1 July 2011.
- To extend grant funding to some third sector projects that expire on the 31 March 2011.
