The Corporate Strategy is the council’s overarching strategic plan. It sets out what we plan to do, how we plan to do it, and how we will measure our performance over the next four years.
The draft strategy proposes a new framework for what we will focus on and how we will work:
- We have one overriding purpose – to improve people’s lives. This might sound simple, but it brings together everything we do, from cleaning the streets to caring for our older people. It is the foundation for our strategy and we will ensure that it drives our commitments, spending and service delivery.
- We have two core policies – tackling the climate and nature emergency and giving people a bigger say. These will shape everything we do.
- To translate our purpose into commitments, we have identified three principles. We want to prepare for the future, deliver for local residents and focus on prevention.
Engagement on the Corporate Strategy
We have already worked with Area Forums on our emerging corporate priorities. We have also recently held 2 public events on the 17th and 19th December to undertake further engagement. However, we want to hear from as many people as possible and would like to now welcome your feedback on our draft Corporate Strategy.
This survey will be open from 20th December 2019 until 24th January 2020. Responses will be analysed and considered by the Council’s Cabinet as part of its Corporate Strategy and budget setting meeting on 13th February 2020. Please read the Draft Corporate Strategy document and share your feedback by answering the below questions.
