Corporate Plan 2020 – 2024

The Corporate Plan highlights the council’s priorities and strategic themes for the next few years. Following a really successful engagement exercise with residents, we reviewed hundreds of responses and our Cabinet members worked hard to finalise the plan. It was adopted at a full council meeting in October 2020.

The themes in the plan are:

  1. Protect and Restore our Natural World
  2. Openness and accountability 
  3. Action on the climate emergency
  4. Improved economic and community well-being
  5. Homes and infrastructure that meet local needs
  6. Investment that rebuilds our financial viability

We want to make sure we are delivering on our Corporate Plan which is why we are monitoring our performance and progress towards achieving the aims and priorities set out in the Plan.

We will publish quarterly reports that give a strategic overview of performance that quarter, looking at activities taken by the council to deliver our priorities.

As well as giving an update on performance against the six strategic themes, the report provides any strategic context relevant to the council’s operations and, given the significant impact of Covid-19 on communities, services and staff, the report will include a section on Covid-19 response and recovery.
