At the meeting of full council on Monday, mayor Winter announced that he intends to use a Westminster-style system of Green and White Papers to develop strategy. Green papers will be used to consult local people on issues of proposed policies. When consultation is complete and policies are confirmed, White Papers will be issued to make a clear statement of intention, and to give stakeholders the opportunity to comment on more detailed proposals.
Mayor Winter said: 'Inclusive, transparent and decisive change for Doncaster is essential for the success of the borough. It is my intention, as mayor, to develop the Green and White Paper concept to formulate the strategies and policies which will ensure that we, in our borough, do indeed achieve our full potential.'
