Leeds Food Audit Report – April 2016

Reference: D43579

Decision Maker: Director of Public Health

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Leeds City Council has provided a response report to the Feed Leeds Deputation request (10.9.14) which encouraged Leeds City Council to initiate the development of a new local Food Strategy. Within the report, recommendation 3 outlined:

“In line with good practice, a baseline audit of current food activity should be commissioned to inform the development of the new food strategy and facilitate cross-council action. A budget of approximately £8k is requested for this work from the Public Health ring fenced budget. Stakeholders can then design a new food strategy in partnership, with each having influence on decision making and responsibility for delivering the actions identified.”

The audit has now been commissioned and a final report is now complete. In order to provide evidence that this recommendation has been actioned, Public Health would like to make the document publically available on the Leeds City Council website.

Public Health requests permission to publish the Leeds Food Audit report on the Council website as a Significant Operational Decision and outline the next steps following the report.
