Q8 - How Have You Come To This Decision?

No posts have been lost in this restructure which is intended to improve the service provided and give individuals development opportunities. There has been no negative impact relating to the diversity of the staff.

Although this CIA was carried out prior to the change in forms to reflect the Equality Act 2010 it is the opinion of those involved that this policy would still not require a full CIA, and therefore does not need to be re - examined.  (Chris Bryant Community Cohesion and Equalities Officer)

You only need to answer this question if you answered yes to Q6.
